Another one I just fell into, odd since it was AARS the year I was born. Would not be without it now, not a big fan of pink roses but this one falls into that pure, clean sugar icing pink like Royal Highness and Promise. In the 70's it was re-classified as a GR and probably, ill-defined as that class remains, that should have stuck as the class because it does (to answer a question posed in 2007) grow taller than a typical floribunda and the blooms, not that large, often come one to a stem as well as clusters and I have never had a huge pannicle. The foliage is matt, medium green and I would say it is above average health wise.

Modern Roses 12 doesn't have an exact height but describes it as vigorous, upright and bushy. I've added the plant patent information. You might read the patent to see if it includes more detail.

In my experience it seems to stay in the 4'-5' tall range, by about 3'-4' wide.
