David Austin reports that is one of the most reliable and hardy roses in their collection! Very disease resistant with continuous bloom through the season. This is an easy to grow rose for anyone but especially if you are just starting to grow roses in your garden. It placed in the top 10 roses chosen by the American Rose Society for 2012. The color of this rose is amazing. Each petal has a salmon-pink upper side set off by the golden-yellow reverse on the underside. The blooms are full, cupped, and have a spiced apple and clove tea fragrance. A good-sized arching bush that has done wonderfully in our own garden. We love it and recommend it.
