Comments Poetry in Motion might be considered an improvement on the very popular Elina, making large and substantial blossoms in an apricot shade of yellow on a more compact and well-branched plant; but it's not a completely fair comparison to either rose. This rose is much more of a garden rose that also happens to make fragrant, make high centered flowers. That one is more of a good exhibition rose. It would appear to be an excellent choice for cool summer climates.
