    Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
    "This dainty little rose has a powerful perfume that can scent an entire room. Buds that are similar to ‘Cécile Brünner’ change from nearly orange to golden pink as they unfold in small clusters. The silky petals curl back neatly upon opening into a delicate pompon shape. Foliage is a soft apple green, healthy, and full on a plant that is seldom out of bloom."
