Deep pink. Moderate, citrus, fruity fragrance. 105 petals. Average diameter 2.5". Large, very full (41+ petals), in small clusters, cupped, quartered bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season.
Medium, bushy, spreading, well-branched. Large, glossy, dark green foliage.
Height of up to 4' (up to 120 cm). Width of up to 42" (up to 105 cm).
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default). Can be used for cut flower, garden, landscape or shrub. Very vigorous. Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom. 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.
Bears magnificent large, cupped blooms that nod gracefully on a fine wide bushy shrub.
