Diana, Princess of Wales is a beauty in soft shades of pink outlining a whitish center. A grand rose named for a grand lady. Mine grows in my south side rose garden.

Rita, located on the north shore of Nassau County Long Island, NY zone 6/7, where it is humid in the summer and roses always need to be sprayed with systemic fungicide to avoid blackspot.
