Nola Simpson. Review of Newer Roses for 1991-92 Season.
'Figurine' (BENfig); Benardella 1990; pale pink and silver; 3 reports on 7 plants; 1-2 years; 80cms; no rating - too few reports. A lot of confusion with this rose as it appears that some plants sold as 'Jennifer' are actually 'Figurine' - perhaps time will sort it out! Have only 3 reports so far, all state it makes a good decorative bloom, pale pink in colour, opens large and shapeless, big plant - more 'patio' style. More information required.
