Sweet Vivien, Florib. (Raffel, 1968) ('Little Darling' x R. Odorata). Sent to me by an American friend who regards it as "the loveliest of all floribundas - it has real personality." The seven centimeter flowers have 10 to 15 petals. The colouring resembles that of 'Handel' - ivory white, edged with pink. Strong bushy growth. Repeats quickly.
