Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"The pink buds open to double blooms of creamy white with a tinge of apricot and contain a rich Tea scent. Our research indicates that this rose was also known as "The Magnolia Rose" probably because of its fruity fragrance. This climber, once established will bloom spring and fall."
