White and pink, pink undertones. Pale apricot fading quickly to creamy white. Strong, musk fragrance. Average diameter 2". Small to medium, single (4-8 petals) bloom form. Prolific. Medium buds.
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).
This seedling resulted from some open pollinated seed shared by Barbara Oliva early in 2007. It is the offspring of an interesting volunteer seedling discovered in Sacramento Historic Rose Garden.
Though likely a hybrid Musk in origin, so far it would probably be best considered a Noisette. There is some indication of multiflora influence.
This seedling is being tested for climactic adaptability and disease resistance.
