Comments The white buds have swirly high centers kissed with pink. They open to white flowers with wavy petals with a very subtle pink blush shading near the edge. The effect is like that of a twirling long skirt. The plant produces many flowers and they are nicely spaced. The effect is completely captivating. The exhibition name is Matilda, but the rose is also known, appropriately enough, as Seduction.
