As of December 15, 2010, the American Rose Society Modern Roses 12 database shows this rose registered as a "single". The photo of the rose on the Sam Kedem Nursery & Garden website shows a rose that is "full" or "very full". Since Sam Kedem Nursery is listed as the introducer of the rose, both on HelpMeFind and in the Modern Roses 12 database, we have changed the description to show that it has 26-40 petals (full), pending correction of the American Rose Society correction.
