An exceptionally beautiful rose, the distinctive blooms are soft pink with a subtle apricot hue. The central petals of each bloom deepen to rich apricot and surround a button eye which gradually unfurls to reveal a cluster of deep-set stamens. The petals are small at the centre and increase in size, by degrees, until the outer petals are quite large, resulting in very neat, rather flat blooms. It flowers freely and almost continually from early summer into autumn. The fragrance is strong — beginning as Tea but becoming more Old Rose with delicious hints of lemon and grapefruit. It forms a tall, bushy shrub with strong, upright growth; the foliage is tinged red at first, later turning green. 1.35m x 1.2m.
It is a finalist for the RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year competition 2018.
