Arena Rose Co.'s Catalog 2000 says Joyfulness is well-suited for cutting and exhibition. The blooms emerge from coppery salmon buds with apricot and peach undertones... and Cynthia Hart reports that Joyfulness seems to change form and color based on the heat of the season. Cynthia's photo was taken during some of Florida's cooler weather.
