  • Description

    This variety bears some of the most perfectly formed flowers of true old rose character. Starting as attractive, nicely rounded buds, the flowers gradually open to shallow cups with perfectly arranged petals. Their colour is pure pink with soft blush on the outside and a lovely pure pink at the centre; the whole effect being totally charming. As the blooms age, the colour of the outer petals softens to a pearly shade. It has excellent health and the petals are particularly resistant to rain. The leaves are tinged red at first, later turning green, then dark green with age. It has a strong, warm, classic myrrh fragrance. .
