Light pink. Flowers pink flushed lilac. Strong fragrance. Medium, very full (41+ petals), in large clusters, globular, old-fashioned bloom form. Spring or summer flush with scattered later bloom. Mossed buds.
Small, medium green foliage.
Height of 5' to 6' (150 to 185 cm).
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default). Very vigorous. Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom. Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.
The correct French name is 'Rosier à longs pédoncules'.
