Radiance (Garden) Needs no introduction. For garden and vases and florists' trade it is universally grown. Favourite for rose hedges. Always among the top listers. Double blooms of carmine pink with silvery pink inside the petals. Vigour of growth, healthy foliage, and freedom of bloom are unsurpassed. Though the flowers are full nosed, their decorative quality is peculiarly their own. Long, strong stems. A sweet rich fragrance. Can be grown to pointed buds in Autumn. Fragrant. Habit 4. (HT)
