Notes:
Weeks Roses says Pillow Fight, a rare seedling of 'Gourmet Popcorn', has bigger more double blossoms, larger leaves and a larger mature habit. Yet it resembles its nealy sterile parent it that it never seems to stop flowering... best performance in drier climtes... Parentage given: 'Pink Pollyanna' x 'Gourmet Popcorn'.
