I can't quite understand why this variety isn't more popular. It may well be my all time favorite scent of any rose, a very strong and distinct, almost 50/50 blend of floral green tea and lemon zest.

The color range may be more subjective but I loved it. Blooms start from orange buds and spend several days in a light metallic coppery range before fading through gold to cream. Especially striking in dim light.

My own root plant bloomed well from June through the start of August, before extreme heat shut it down. It's now budding well, already 3.5ft x 3ft in the start of its second year, and looks extremely promising.
