Colour changed from orange and yellow in its first year into salmon-pink and light yellow in its second, blending, veining. Strong, citrus, rose, sweet fragrance. Average diameter 3". Medium to large, very double, borne mostly solitary, classic hybrid tea bloom form. Moderate, blooms in flushes throughout the season. Medium buds.
Medium, arching, armed with thorns / prickles. Medium, semi-glossy, dark green foliage.
Hardy. vigorous. drought resistant. heat tolerant.
A very strong sweet citrus/rose fragrance, much stronger and in my opinion better than Westerland.
Lots of hooked prickles which might suggest it could be a climber. We'll see the oncoming years, how it behaves.
