Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"The Noisette heritage of this charming rose shows up in both the fragrance and the larger, very double flowers of rich, muted apricot. Dark red new shoots are characteristic of this versatile plant, which can be grown as a low, spreading shrub or as the perfect pillar rose. ‘Buff Beauty’ improves its floral display with each year. If grown as a climber, this rose will reach 8 to 10 feet."
