Comments Parade makes informal four inch blossoms in a shade of pink that can range from electric pink to cerise or soft rose. The plant is one of the few that has consistently pleased me both in New Jersey and in Arizona. It's reasonably vigorous even on its own roots, though it does not do well on thin, poor soil. It does not let wild vascillations in temperature and unexpected frosts damage it. ARS members rate it higher than its famous parent New Dawn, probably because it makes bigger flowers and more of them. Maybe, too, because its thorns are less vicious, and it is more remontant.
