This grandiflora rose honors one of the courageous passengers of United Airlines flight 93 on 9/11/01. It's aptly named because its ruffled petals in a delicate blend of mauve and silver are unmistakably feminine, but its thick canes and high resistance to disease attest to its strength.

It's a tall rose, typically between 5 and 6 feet tall, and has a strong citrus fragrance. The blooms are large and are produced in small clusters. It's more resistant to pests and diseases than most of the other mauve roses.
