Has anyone noticed a glaucous hue on the foliage?
The clone I received at the nursery last year has a quite conspicuous foliage, of a light and luminous glaucous fresh green.
Since it didn't bloom yet I cannot speak of the flowers and, since there is no reference about this feature I wonder if any of you noticed this to find out if it is the true variety i have.
Thanks in advance!

'Arthur Hillier' : This is for large gardens, only, since in time it attains a height of twelve feet and a spread of quite as much, a huge fountain of graceful branches which bear a vast number of pale crimson flowers succeeded by scarlet hips. This rose is a cross between R. macrophylla and R. moyesii and a very great beauty when well grown.
