is a tall, very hardy outdoor seedling of the bush type, producing an
abundance of large, sweetly scented blossoms that open yellow and
peachy-orange, then develop a scarlet blush. The flowers' long, strong
stems and urn-shaped buds make them very suitable for cutting. The plant's
nearly continual bloom, unusually heavy, leathery and very glossy foliage,
and well-branched habit make it an attractive garden plant, and its
above-average vigor and superb disease resistance make it a
low-maintenance plant, ideal for landscaping.
