This rose is very much in keeping with the Hybrid Musk style and has a lovely scent. Possible the best rose I have bred, to date.
The color changes as each bloom opens and matures, to give a multicolor effect, something like Black Hills Gold. After a year or so, I can also observe that this rose is impervious to powdery mildew and rust, and that the fragrance is outstanding.
The habit is pleasingly arching and graceful. Jeri Jennings
