Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"The clusters of rounded buds open to soft, salmon-pink, semi-double flowers with a touch of yellow at the base of the petals. Gifted with a true rose fragrance, this rose is ideal for growing in a pot where it can be easily appreciated. Strong sun burns off the fragrant oils, so make sure to "stop and smell the roses" during the morning hours."
