Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"When this rose blooms at our display gardens it is difficult to keep pace with the demand. The perfectly formed, soft pink, satin-like rosettes bloom in large, clustered sprays throughout the growing season. It is a great cut flower with a slight fragrance or can be enjoyed as a container plant for its dark leathery foliage and exquisite blooms."
