Just had my first bloom open on a new transplant.It was gorgeous.The photos online really don't do justice for the flower.I can only imagine what they will look like on an established plant.

I bought this in a pot in 2002, planted Autumn that year. It has grown up with the new bed, given some rose fertiliser and a good mulch in poor sandy soil it has done exceptionally well. Growing quite tall to around 5', the new stems are a coppery burgundy, as are the new leaves. It seems to be disease free, is robust and repeat flowers very well. The change from a tight, deeply coloured bud, to an open deep apricot, then to a huge, loose, paler frilly bloom is amazing. The scent is overpowering, that is the main reason I HAD to buy it.

This is my favorite rose of all time. It has the most beautiful soft, pastel color and a wonderful fragrance. The blooms are large and informal and continuous. If I had to have only one rose this is the one I would choose.
