James Pius writes: 'Sweet Surrender' was certainly a sweet surprise when she flowered! Each bloom is between 4-6". I find the fragrance of 'Sweet Surrender' is more intense and sweeter than of it's parent, 'Tiffany'. Considering 'Tiffany' is noted for its fragrance, it's not easily outdone, but I'm not complaining! I especially love the silvery pink blooms as they seem to shimmer in the sunlight. The open flower is more ruffled and relaxed than 'Tiffany' but truly a sublime specimen for any garden. 'Sweet Surrender' is just as healthy as 'Tiffany' and just as tall. They make great companions in the garden. 'Sweet Surrender' makes for a great cut flower, too. It's quite the fantastic rose as it seems to have everything going for it!!
