Comments White petals are tipped with dark cerise or scarlet in the manner of Hannah Gordon/Nicole/Tabris. It is listed among the best roses for Sacramento, yet it garners a mere 7.2 from ARS members. Either it doesn't show well, or it is prone to black spot in the muggy central and southern US. The latter is a little difficult to believe based on its ancestry. Photos of this rose do suggest a bit of lax informality absent the best Tabris blossoms.
