Mozart covers iteslf in small, single, strawberry pink flowers with a white eye. This is one of Lambert's latest and most profuse-flowering roses. In an interesting twist he uses one of Pemberton's roses, Robin Hood, as a parent. Pemberton frequently used Lambert's Trier as the parent of his excellent hybrid musk roses. In any case, this is an excellent shrub that shares both Ballerina's heritage and most of its attributes, adding slightly stronger color and fragrance.
BTW: This makes Mozart a half-sister to Iceberg. It seems to possess many of the same qualities, except its cult following is much smaller. Mozart's obscurity in comparison to Ballerina and Iceberg is a bit of a shame because in addition to being very good at producing flowers, it also produces fragrance.
