‘Apricot Nectar’: Floribunda. Depuis son lancement le succès de ce rosier n’a jamais fléchi. Et comment résister à ses fleurs en coupes parfaites, au teint d’abricot doré réchauffé d’un soupçon de rose?... Elles sont si pleines et si larges que parfois, surtout en climat chaud, il faut supprimer des boutons, sans quoi elles s’écrasent mutuellement dans l’inflorescence… Boerner, USA, 1965.

Apricot Nectar... a beautiful pink-apricot with a gold base and a lovely perfume... for many years it was very healthy. But a virus problem raised its head and the plant quickly deteriorated. However, help was at hand and special attention was given it by Mr. E.F. (Ted) Allen, past Hon. Scientific Adviser to the Royal National Rose Society, and grower Pat Dickson from Northern Ireland. Between them they decided that the virus in the plant could be cleaned by heat treatment. It worked. New budwood from the very tips of the stems was provided and the rose is still available today. The virus problem didn't develop in Australia and America... somewhere during the initial planting of the variety to provide budding material it picked up a virus.
