This is a very good rose - bloomed in the winter time in Houston area, the blooms lasted 2 weeks in a vase!!!!! Medium sized blooms in HT form. Very happy I got this rose.

Just struck me that this one is GREAT, nothing like it..............yet at 45 has not produced any notable offspring.SURELY it was tried----and yes it HAS offspring----but nothing even CLOSE.................so interesting how the "gene pool" gets road blocked??? Or how much less "unique" much less "ahead of time" varieties end up being much better parents in the big picture..................

Almost 50 years old and still there is nothing like this one. Has been in my garden since I was a child, and agree with what is written prior, it does get BIG, this is not your normal "floribunda." And absolutely likes to grow as wide as high, too. In 6a it is good and hardy, always comes back, the blooms are gorgeous until they age then, as others will agree, they tend to hang on and hang on and spot terribly. Does anyone else remember back around 72-74 when ARS took many HT's and FL's and reclassied them as GR (only to reverse the change around 75)? Apricot Nectar was one of them and probably one of the better candidates to have been reclassified, because of its size..........has anyone ever tried breeding with it? Mine never set the hips..............Gay Princess, 1967, is not unlike a light pink version of Apricot Nectar...........

I have tried to grow Apricot Nectar twice and each time was disappointed. First, I should say that the flowers are lovely -- nicely formed and with wonderfully subtle color. My problem with AN has always been the same: powdery mildew. I don't know why it is such a problem for me, since others don't seem to have more than a touch of mildew to report. Both times it was a crippling infestation that left the foliage distorted and ugly. buds shrunken and flowers spindly. I've shovel pruned it twice and have reluctantly given up on growing AN.
