Large trusses of small single flowers: Honeyflow, white, flushed pale pink at times; and .... The above roses all have Gartendirektor Otto Linne somewhere in their breeding and have the same leaf formation and long

‘Honeyflow’. Modern Cluster-Flowered Floribunda. Pink Blend. Repeat Flowering. This small, low-growing but spreading plant is well worth growing in a larger garden where there is enough space to make a worthwhile planting. It should be planted in long rows on either side of a formal path. The wood is thin and masses of shoots are produced from the base, each one carrying a large head of small, single, off-white flowers with the palest touch of pink. The foliage is pale green. Free flowering and hardy, it is very disease resistant and shows only some mildew. Zones 5-9. Riethmuller, Australia. 1957. ‘Spring Song’ x ‘Gartendirektor Otto Linne’

Reithmuller left us other shrub roses ideally suited to our climate and conditions: the pale pink single ‘Carabella’..... paler, almost creamy-coloured ‘Honeyflow’, less vigorous but also thornless and perpetual flowering.
p231 ‘Honeyflow’ is not unlike 'Carabella’ but a paler pink, almost white, and it seems less vigorous.
p232 ....And from Myrtle Robertson, too, comes ‘Cousin Essie’, a seedling from Riethmuller’s ‘Honeyflow’.
