Plant details

Introduced in 2007 at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, this pink rose produces large, full, cup-shaped flowers from initial spiral shaped buds. Blooms are carried singly or in small clusters. The flowers have a spicy fragrance and last well as a cut flower. Foliage is leathery, mid-green and large, with a good resistance to fungal diseases.
