Pink, red center, yellow stamens. 6 to 8 petals. Average diameter 8". Single, ruffled edge bloom form. Late spring to early summer, late summer.
Height of 8' to 10' (245 to 305 cm).
USDA zone 4b through 9b. Best in a sunny location. Suitable for growing in a container. This plant blooms twice. It blooms on the previous year's growth, so resist the urge to prune it in early spring. However, if you garden in a place with cold winters, Mother Nature will more than likely prune the plant for you. It will bloom a second time on new growth.
