According to Google-translated info on the website of the Chinese Plant Varieties Protection Information Network (, the parentage of this rose is Bernstein Rose x Nirvana.

Codename implies this would be correct, as well.

Year after year, a consistent, excellent performer. Great cane diameter to support big clusters of pale ivory-pink flowers. Virtually disease free in my organic/no spray garden. In my top ten faves.

"Mildew resistant" - not at all. It was the first rose this spring to get mildew!

NEW RELEASE 2005. ROSE OF THE YEAR 2006. A delightful new floribunda with magnificient trusses of sweetly fragrant flowers of creamy pink, with apricot centres. Growth is consistently excellent with strong glossy dark green leaves and exceptional levels of disease resistance. This is a superb variety that will be hugely rewarding when planted as a specimen or in groups of several together. 90cms.

Mine is pure white in eastern coastal zone 8. Something must be wrong with my nose because I cannot detect the fragrance. Otherwise it is a superb rose but it is a climber here, started out 6-7 ' in its first year, so we replanted very fast along the fence from the rose bed where it would have been in the first row as low growing floribundas should be. It is gorgeous and has exceptional disease resistance.

In fairness, the description of Champagne Moment was largely 'cut and pasted' from the breeder. However it is a magnificent rose.
Very healthy and to my nose, only a mild perfume. In the UK it will grow happily to about 3' 6" but no taller. The bloom is cream with an apricot centre but varies with conditions.
I would guess that in your weather conditions which are are better than ours, with higher temperatures than we get, it would get very tall. The sun could also account for the lighter (almost white) colouration.
It's still a great rose though, I wouldn't be without it.
