This rose has beautiful high-centered blooms with a strong anise fragrance. The color can vary with changes in temperature. For most of the year, the rose is a perfect apricot blend, but the blooms in winter and early spring are often golden-yellow. It is an extraordinarily vigorous rose. Mine is grafted onto Fortuniana rootstock and shoots up to 6-7 feet every year even though I prune the massive canes down to about 3 feet in December.

Tahitian Sunset is one of the most satisfying roses that I have in my garden. The plant grows and blooms well. The blossoms have very nice classic HT form. and are pleasant even when full blown. Color varies according to the season, but is always pleasant. This is one that I will replace if I happen to lose it.
