Comments Petals a warm medium pink are edged in a dusky dark maroon-cherry color that creeps inward as they unfurl. Qualitatively like its ancestor Double Delight, but darker and without the delicious fragrance. When it looks good, it looks unique and spectacular. Sadly, this condition is too rare, and when the rose does not look perfect it can look pretty ugly with strange off-colors and splotches.
