This exquisite beauty is one of rare coloring among the Gallica hybrids, its soft blush pink hues undoubtedly inherited from its purported China ancestor. Every bloom of this rose is perfect in color and form; its cupped shape holding over a hundred soft pink petals, all perfectly placed. Add to that a most wonderful fragrance, beautiful foliage and growth, and we have one of the finest Old Roses ever created. This is a rose whose blossoms can entrance those who behold them.
