Positive hanna1 On May 25, 2005, hanna1 from Castro Valley, CA (Zone 9a) wrote:

The shrub is of moderate size, remains under 4'Hx4'W. Loosely striped variety has unique cupped bloom form, about 60 petals. Each bloom is about 3" across in generous clusters of 5 or more. sometimes a green pointel at the center instead of stigmas. Deep pink stripe on top of a pale pink ground. Highly disease resistant, scent is spicy rather than sweet.
