A light yellow background tint creates vivid salmon highlights on new blooms, fading to pink and white. Delightful fragrance. Blooms generously with medium-large flowers on a sturdy bush. Foliage is particularly attractive - very large, glossy, deep green leaves. My specimen has been very healthy and vigorous in its first two years.
