Comments Its high-centered flowers boast nicely scrolled coral petals that frame a high-center in a lovely shade of apricot, giving this rose a more formal look. This is augmented by the dark leaden green foliage. Blossoms are blessed with good fragrance. The rose will definitely need protection against blackspot.
