This sport of Polka has pretty blooms packed with up to 100 petals, but it isn't as floriferous or as vigorous as Polka in my zone 9 garden. It also doesn't have as much fragrance as Polka.

The blooms range from creamy white to medium yellow, and all variations can be seen on the bush simultaneously.
