Received this rose in a trade in the fall, and it took it a full season (1 1/2 years) to settle in and decide to bloom, but the blooms are quite beautiful and unique, pink with yellow undertones. Seems quite disease resistant, and has grown vigorously in a location where it receives about 5 hours of direct sun daily. A very old rose, and quite variable in its bloom color, according to a variety of texts. Edited to add--quite a lovely fragrance--fruity, medium intensity, in my opinion.
