(Austango) Summer Song
Vibrant blooms of an unusual orange-red colour. They open to full, medium-sized cups, with many inner petals arranged rather informally within a perfect ring of outer petals. There is a lovely mixed scent with hints of chrysanthemum leaves, ripe bananas and Tea. It forms a bushy, upright shrub. David Austin, 2005.
