Cherry pink buds open to semi double flowers that are carried singly or in clusters of up to 5 and strong straight stems.  The notched petals are dark pink with yellow at their base and keep their color for a long time before slowly fading to mid pink. The yellow stamens also keep their color before turning brown when the bloom fades.  The plants are bushy and have dark green, healthy leaves.  An excellent rose for exhibition as well as in cutting.
