This is the first double pink that I know of in the US. The hybridizer is Monika Gottschalk. The plant had several blooms before frost, but needs to be evaluated again next year for a period of time. The color is good, the blooms lasted well in our not so hot summer, and the fragrance is light. Cuttings root like a dream.
