This beautiful shrub rose has blooms that are salmon-orange with a yellow reverse in the center and apricot-pink outer petals. The petals are ruffled and have a delicious scent, a blend of peaches and vanilla. It grows fairly well on its own roots in my zone 9 garden, reaching a height of 3-4 feet and a width of 2-3 feet. It is one of the roses of Dominique Massad's Generosa collection, a line of rapidly reblooming shrubs with very full blooms in large clusters.
