Well, the orange-red fad was very much over by 1980 yet this one hit the market (and somehow Bing Crosby won AARS in 82).........I grew this one in the late 80's and I am only commenting here because there is just nothing to say! It wasn't BAD. It stood out in NO MANNER. The blooms were kind of small but nicely formed. The plant was lankey. Well, who needed a pixilated Command Performance 10 years later? If only Weeks had held on to this for another decade, the name would have resonated more soundly in some manners with Clinton and the color would have been more appreciated..........along with Bng Crosby (next to Apollo one of the biggest AARS 'jokes' ever) this one just bookended the orange-red craze 1960-1980 and in a not notable of those varieties that when you understand how improbable a rose will ever get released is, it is just shocking this ever got released..................again, NOT BAD! But 75,000 other seedlings "that year" were also "not BAD!"
