Camelot (Swim) H.T. Warm coral. If you've seen the musical you'll have some idea of what a sumptuous production is the rose. It is an entirely new pink—rich yet almost chalky, with a pronounced irridescence and a faint golden sheen. The blooms, big and lavishly full, cover the bush all season, parading singly and in huge clusters before a plentiful backdrop of large, dark leaves. The plant is outstandingly strong, exuberant, tall and healthy. All American Award Winner, 1965.
