  • Description

    The young buds are a rich orange-red. These open to form chalice-shaped blooms, filled with loosely arranged petals. Each petal has a salmon-pink upper side which contrasts beautifully with the attractive golden-yellow reverse. The chalice shape means that the undersides of the petals are clearly seen, revealing glimpses of the deeper apricot colour in the heart of the bloom. There is a pleasant, warm tea fragrance, with hints of spiced apple and cloves. This rose promises to be one of the most robust roses in our collection. It is highly resistant to disease and it will bloom with unusual continuity throughout the season. Indeed, it is an ideal rose for the inexperienced gardener.
