Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"We get great enjoyment from watching this large flowering Polyantha rose bloom its heart out for us in our growing field. The cupped, semi-double, bright rose-pink blooms are borne in delicate clusters and fade to a light pinkish-white with age. The fragrance is light and clean. Bushy and vigorous in growth habit, this rose shows no evidence of disease problems."
