I have 3 of the 5 Parfuma Collection roses and out of them this one has been the least productive. Its foliage fades a light lime color and it's bloom only a few roses at a time repeating only two times all summer. Compared to 6 sets for Dark Desire and 5 for First Crush. It has only been a single season so its to early to completely write a detailed review, this is a season 2016 note.
