Comments Jude makes deeply cupped flowers packed with petals that are deliciously fragrant. The color of the flowerranges from an assertive orangish apricot through shell pink, pale apricot, ivory, or buff. The plant builds up slowly but very surely; it's tallish but fairly well branched. And it has a solid health record. It would be hard to claim that it bears a great many flowers. In fact, it might be a little spare with them; but the ones it does bear are glorious.
