Comments Its pale roses are a mix of soft yellow and soft pink that can render shell pink, pale apricot, ivory with touches of buff, or sometimes gray. The petals reflex and twist to produce a lovely romantic effect. The flowers are nicely spaced and - as they should on such a large plant - tend to face outward rather than upward. The plant is very well suited both to cold winter and cool summer zones. It is vigorous and disease-resistant. It does not, however, flourish in poor, dry soil.
