Comments Mountbatten's deliciously fragrant flowers are a clear and delicious lemon yellow sometimes enriched with a touch peach blush. They are globular - definitely not your exhibition style hybrid tea form. They are borne with good continuity on a well branched plant well furnished with foliage that shiny, dark, and healthy.
