Breeder's notes:
Pink Licorice has a VERY strong licorice fragrance. It was evaluated for introduction by a commercial nursery but was thought to be "just another pink rose" therefore it is not commercially available but is registered for exhibitioin.
After field growing this rose the decision was made to NOT commercially introduce it. It is registered for exhibition purposes and to provide parentage background on other varieties. To the best of our knowledge it is not commercially available.
