Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"One of the interesting aspects of this rose is the changes of flower color while blooming. Perfectly formed blooms of pink, apricot, and cream fade overtime, exhibiting different intensities of color. Fragrance is fruity on a very attractive shrub which grows five feet tall."
