Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Bred from the famous white Hybrid Perpetual ‘Frau Karl Druschki’, ‘Grüss an Aachen’ is believed to be the original rose that began the Floribunda class. Flat, 3 inch flowers nearly cover a 3 feet tall, bushy plant. The buds are colorful, with tints of orange-red and yellow, but the flowers open pale pink and fade to creamy white with a light hint of fragrance. Like all Floribundas, this rose is everblooming throughout the season."
