We have named this rose after the daughter of David Austin Junior, so it has to be something rather special! It is, in fact, possibly the best rose that we have introduced to date. Its flowers are of beautiful Old Rose formation, commencing as prettily cupped buds and gradually opening to become shallowly cupped rosettes of three and a half inches across; being attractive at all stages. The colour is a lovely soft shade of pink and it has a strong, pleasing fragrance with distinct fruity tints. The growth is vigorous and it repeat-flowers well. The foliage is of typical shiny Leander type. It is also one of the most disease-resistant of all the roses we know.
