Comments It's a climber that makes old rose style roses packed with thin, pointy petals. The flowers are four inches across, and they are produced on a vigorous climber. There is a strong damask fragrance. This was one of the first hybrid bracteata roses, though breeders since have incorporated it a little more widely in recent years.

BTW: HelpMeFind Roses reminds us not to confuse this rose with one bred in 1965 called Pink Powder Puff which was tossed out of Auckland regional Botanical Gardens display trial for failure to perform.
