Comments In 1966 this was the pink rose to have. The obvious hope of the breeder was that it would have the perfect form of Charlotte Armstrong, but a warmer color. Arianna is candy pink in some climates, coral or salmon with orange undertones in others. The form is variable, but it can be very good. Perhaps it is one more rose only for warmish, well-tempered climates; for it is mostly distributed in places like New Zealand.
