Comments Starting out mid-way between pale an apricot and copper, the flowers fade quickly toward shell pink. They are fragrant and borne periodically through the season. Unfortunately this rose, one of the so-called Pernetianas derived from Rosa foetida, is more than a little prone to blackspot, making it a bad choice for very sultry climates.
