Gardeners' Notes:

I received 2 small rooted cuttings in August that got a late start but are blooming in Dec. in zone 9 in pots. It's described as pink but they open a peachy pink that darkens to an exotic coral shade as days pass. The flowers are large with wonderful 2" points & are very fragrant. One flower lasted 10 days probably because of ideal 70* days & 50* nights.

This is Ada Helms cross: Amber Rose x Butterfly, I was honored to grow it this year. It is a stunning bloom, smells wonderul and held up very well to our heat of summer without drooping, blooms stayed open near a week without looking ragged. It was just released Oct. 2005 under name Rhapsody :)
