I have grown this rose for years.
My original plant was a a cutting taken from Kim Rupert's old garden in Santa Clarita.
The plant is now over five feet tall and wide.

The blooms come in big clusters that continue from Spring well into Fall here in our area.

The colors are a glowing buff-apricot that holds up well even in the heat of summer.
