Colette is one of the Meilland Romantica ™ line, a tough rose, a survivor like her sport Lunar Mist. They are spectacular planted close enough to intertwine.
The well scented mango-peach-cream blend of blooms, sometimes changing to pink, are produced in abundance with a minimum of care on a disease free vigorous plant throughout the season in our fairly challenging climate. I love the full old fashioned cabbage rose form of the flowers in all their stages from bud to almost done. My plant is not producing stems long enough to display in anything but a bud vase but i am hopeful this will change as the plant matures.
