This rose has been evaluated for several years now and has proven to be a beautiful small shrub. It has often attracted a great deal of attention from visitors when in bloom in my greenhouse, not only for its luminous color but its compact growth and strong fruity fragrance. I find this to be a highly rewarding small shrub, capable of a nearly unending display of Old Fashioned blooms. In the Spring and the Fall, bloom color is often more of a deep Apricot hue, while in warmer weather it is sometimes more of a burnished Gold color. I am very pleased with this rose. It is my first Hybrid Bracteata in commerce, following a breeding line using Ralph Moore's superb 'Out of Yesteryear'. Mr. Moore prompted me to start using his rose several years ago and I urge other breeders to take it up as well, as it passes on some truly remarkable qualities to many of its offspring.
