Comments Marilyn Monroe is a rose you want in your bed. One you want to cultivate a close relationship with. Yes, she's a buxom blonde with huge blossoms and unusually classic form who likes it hot. But look out for those thorns! The flowers range in color from the pale buff of a manilla folder to a rich apricot. The form is high-centered but not very. The petals are thick and substantial and the flowers open at a leisurely pace helping it win at exhibitions. The plant is vigorous, cold-hardy and very resistant to disease. Happy birthday Mr President.
