Breeder's notes:
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)
Ploidy:
Tetraploid
Notes:
The Peter Beales Collection of Classic Roses 2000-2001 describes the color of the blooms as soft pink tinged yellow and says this rose was rediscovered by Mr. Huxley-Thomas.
