From the Apuldram web site:

A wonderful new addition to Apuldram Roses and launched by us at Hampton Court this year. Birthday Boy has large full blooms of lilac purple with the most powerful perfume, flowers are produced both singly and in clusters on good strong stems. It has excellent resistance to disease and produces blooms in abundance from early in the season until the first frost. The foliage is glossy and light green. It also makes a super rose for bedding, cutting and can be grown in a container.
