Pretty, rounded buds gradually open to form very large, full, cupped rosettes, the outer petals recurving back slightly. Their colour is crimson at first, gradually changing to an unusual shade of rich, deep pink. The petals have attractive, silvery reverses. A rather upright shrub, with a graceful, bushy growth. David Austin, 2006.
