Comments from John Clements:
I have dedicated this beautiful rose for my Uncle Robert Clements, with whom I shared a mutual love of roses for more than 40 years. He is in his 80's living in Texas and still growing roses. Now to the rose. Long pointed buds open to classically shaped blooms, that have an artistic feel to their color. Rich deep apricot-blush, overlayed with orange-red almost coppery toward the edge of the petals. The striking blooms are produced in good numbers on a wall foliaged shrub, with rich bright-green, glossy leaves. Continuous bloom, very disease resistant, and hardy 5-10.
