Fryer's Roses says Adriana has large elegant buds which open to reveal shapely blooms of delicate pale cream, deepening to creamy caramel, with a spicy fragrance. This rose marks the 75th anniversary of LEPRA and is named for Adriana, the fourteen-year-old Brazilian girls whose plight was highlighted in a series of remarkable BBC Blue Peter films.
