I just bought this rose from Home Depot. Blooms are fragrant, peony-pink colored, and old fashioned. They age to a lavender-pink.

Star Roses is marketing this as a "floribunda romantica." Very confusing marketing, but a nice rose.

I am glad to see more Radler roses available locally. IMO, this rose is much nicer than the ubiquitous Knock Outs.
