I like this plant, plenty of blooms, low maintenance, VERY disease resistant and more tolerant of shade then most roses. I also like that deadheading is not required because the flowers drop their petals before they turn brown.

I do however have an issue with the color.

The flower bud as a bright orange and the day they open they are indeed amber, but after the first day they turn pink and the flower last for quite a while. More often then not my shubs have many pink flower and just a few amber/orange ones.
