Profuse bloomer (10 flowers on first flush), few insect problems, soft fuzzy leaves as with all doubles I've seen. Beautiful dark pink here in Zone 8a, temps in the 40-50 range.

This plant is the result of a hybridization done by Monika Gottschalk. It is a good bloomer, blooms last well, fragrance is nice, and cuttings root quickly. Day Dreams will NOT live over the winter in zone 5, outside. It must be held over, potted, in above freezing conditions.
