Yellow blend. Rich orange, coppery buds. Salmon pink flushed orange. Strong fragrance. Large, double (17-25 petals) bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season.
USDA zone 6b and warmer. Disease susceptibility: very disease resistant. Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.
