Plant Profile: Rose Escapade

Bright crimson buds open to lilac pink flowers with white centers and conspicuous yellow stamens.   The flowers fade to pale pink in hot climates creating a lovely effect with many shades of pink on the plants at the same time.  The bushy plants have pale glossy leaves that are especially healthy and resistant to mildew, blackspot and rust.
