Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Small, double blooms of pale gold and shaded pink that are borne in clusters litter this everblooming, climbing Polyantha. In our heat, we find the blooms fade to a creamy white with age. With Perle dOr and Glorie de Dijon as parents, there is no doubt why this is such a lovely and outstanding rose."
