Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"This rather late Noisette has large, loosely double flowers that open nearly orange, fading to a rich apricot-yellow. The dark canes have light green leaves and few thorns, and are best trained as a climber. It never fails to attract attention everytime it flushes into bloom."
