Comments The fragrant flower is pink and hints at a high-centered hybrid tea form, but misses widely. The foliage is a delightful dark glaucous green usually found on albas. Flowers are borne with good continuity through the season, though never in much profusion. It is extremely tolerant of cold and poor soils. It tolerates shade and dampness. But it also does well enough in hotter and drier climes, tolerating a considerable amount of dryness.
