Luscious beautiful roseReview by Carola
A friend gave me this rose as a housewarming gift 20 years ago. The blooms are huge and a rich blend of pinks. It started me as a rose gardener (now up to 400 plants!) but I still run up to it when the flowers begin to open. What a luscious delight of a rose! (Posted on 2/18/2014)
