Comments The small number of petals unfurl in a swirl around the center of the flower. While they do so they turn from a soft yellow to a warm candy pink. It's the color metamorphosis of a number of old tea roses. The flower has a soft, ethereal quality. It is a rose bred in Australia, grown there, and distributed there. We presume it is not a good one for coolish or dampish climates.
