Russet.  Mild fragrance.  17 to 25 petals.  Average diameter 1.5".  Medium, double (17-25 petals) bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Habit:
Height of 18" to 2' (45 to 60 cm).  
Growing:
USDA zone 6b and warmer.  Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.  Can be grown in the ground or in a container (container requires winter protection).  
Notes:
Ralph Moore says this rose gets its name from the unusual russet tones overlaying light peachy pink with a darker reverse. When fully open the flower resembles a camellia and the canes are nearly thornless.
