  • Description

    The fully open flowers are very large, 4-5" across, and have only 10 petals. They are a rich apricot colour, with an area of yellow behind the stamens. The fragrance is fruity with a strong element of lemon zest. It forms a spreading shrub, the many stems producing a mass of flowers held in large heads. David Austin, 2011.
