Although this superb rose was bred in the UK it has really taken the USA by storm.
Each year they choose a few roses for their All American Rose Award but in 2010 there was only one winner, so it looks something special.
Quite big for a floribunda it produces masses of huge intensely ruffled blooms of mango orange suffusing to pink.
The colour is very difficult to describe but peach, mango, pink and orange are all there to make quite a confectionary of colours.
It is even difficult to catch the colour on film but the picture featured is probably the best we can find for the moment.
As you would expect from a rose with such a top award it flowers all season, it is very healthy, plus the bonus of a lovely perfume.
It looks a sure fire winner in the UK
