Comments The lovely pale orange petals have a bright apricot reverse. And the foliage has just a touch of a blue tinge which amplifies the effect. There is a nice fragrance. The rose is not, however, freeze-proof. And it is probably a martyr to blackspot where summers are hot and muggy. Furthermore, the flower evidently fades very quickly. In the two or three counties in the nation where it does grow, it evidently does so vigorously; it blooms prettily, and it brings much happiness.
