This is a rose of beautiful and unusual colouring that is hard to describe – burnt orange
would be one possibility.
The flower starts as a rounded bud that gradually opens to a full cup
, with many inner petals arranged rather informally within a perfect ring of outer petals.
It has a lovely strong, mixed scent, which the Austin fragrance experts tell is ‘like a florist’s shop, with hints of chrysanthemum leaves, ripe bananas and tea’. In fact, the growers say it's the banana
mostly they sense in the fragrance...
It forms a bushy, upright shrub that can be pruned to grow tall or short, according to your requirements.
