Light pink Floribunda.
Registration name: Poulsen's Pink
Pink, light yellow undertones. Moderate fragrance. Semi-double (9-16 petals), cluster-flowered bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season.
Upright. Glossy, light green foliage.
Height of 30" (75 cm). Width of 2' (60 cm).
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).
Pale pink, shaded white. The blooms, which are about 2 inches in diameter, are very freely produced in pretty clusters of 4 and 5, and keep their colour well. When fully opened, the golden stamens give a very charming effect. The foliage is a light green, and ample. Should make a very pretty bedding variety. It is classed as a Hybrid Poly., but is more really closely allied to the poly. pom. In commerce. (RNRS, The Rose Annual 1939)
