Pink, darker center. Very large, full (26-40 petals) bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season.
USDA zone 5b through 10b.
Mike Lowe of Lowe's Roses says the flowers are a fresh beautiful pink with a darker center. This rose is more vigorous than its parent, 'Souvenir de la Malmaison', and is, in Mike Lowe's opinion at any rate, the best of the dwarf Bourbons.
I believe this rose was named in memory of a young officer in the French Army who died in combat during the 1870 French/German war. Amadis
