‘Evelyn’ is better suited to the warmer climates of the US where it grows well. The blooms are particularly large and most attractive, the petals being beautifully arranged. The color is a glorious soft apricot, sometimes tinged with soft pink. It has few thorns. It has a wonderful fragrance, which is similar in style to an Old Rose, but with a sumptuous fruity note reminiscent of fresh peaches and apricot
