"Salmon-pink, ages to lighter ." in the description is directly contradicted by the breeder's note.

According to the patent: "...flower color of Orient Pink, when protected from the sun before opening, darkening to Rose Opal when fully open."

Perhaps Point 5 in the Patent confused someone? I have added some color descriptions from the Patent and I too am a bit confused.

I won a blue ribbon with this rose when I was teenager. It was in a normal category, however. This rose has HUGE blooms (7") on an average size bush. I recall absolutely no disease. It did suffer from vigor and hardiness issues. This is amazing, since I typically dislike pink. This rose was definitely unique.

I wish someone would re-create a modern version of this.

We see they are listed as T & E Pastorino Nursery and they do not appear to have a website to reference. They are of course welcome to add their nursery to HelpMefind. A basic listing on HMF is free and it will allow them to list their inventory using an online form. It's very quick and very easy.

I know that they say this rose has a light fragrance but my plant has more of a moderate fragrance. I really like the scent this rose has, fruity.

I rate fragrance of CM as better than slight, almost moderate. Deb says it is moderate. We like the fragrance too.

This is one of my favorite type of scents for a rose. I tend to like the fruity scents better than the old rose or tea scents.
I'm glad that I am not the only one that has this as a moderates scent. Now I know I'm not crazy;)

We have several that aren't supposed to be very fragrant but are for us. I noticed you have Rio Samba. Our Rio Samba's fragrance is as strong as any of our Gamble Award winners. I just smile when people say it can't be that fragrant. The one that really upsets some is Ingrid Bergman. Ingrid has a nice moderate fragrance in this area. I've checked dozens of them in other gardens. There are those that refuse to believe she can have any fragrance.

The ULTIMATE ROSE BOOK states that Catherine Kordes has NO scent and expressed surprise that she spawned the magnificently scented Chrystler Imperial, Mr. Lincoln, Oklahoma, Crimson Glory chain. My Catherine Kordes IS moderate to strong in the perfume dept. Likewise the rose literature has stated how the weakly scented Garden Party parented the super strong Double Delight, yet my Garden Party frequently smells just like a slightly milder version of. Double Delight

Our Garden Party has an almost strong fragrance too. It isn't a stinker but there is no chance it won't be noticed.

My GP smells great as well. Extremely sweet, like sugar. One of my husband's favorites for scent.
