Comments In bud the flowers are a deep apricot, almost orange. They open to a tea rose form not unlike, say Monsieur Tillier with its pleated narrow petals and as they do so, they fade to pale apricot, shell pink or even a pale ivory. The plant is vigorous, well branched, well clad in satiny green foliage, and disease resistant.
