Picasso, Fl. (McGredy, 1971). 'Marlena' x ['Evelyn Fison' x ('Fruhlingsmorgen' x 'Orange Sweetheart')]. Light red, three inch blooms with a clear white eye and a white edging to each of the 15 petals. Type B (three to seven flowers in each panicle). This rose has had a lot of publicity and it is unusual but I am afraid that I cannot like it.
