Elegant blooms evoke hand-painted porcelain. Add a dash of sophistication and a blush of color to your cottage garden, rose bed or flower border with this elegant variety from celebrated breeder Christian Bédard. It’s lovely buds unfurl to release classically shaped, 3½–4" blooms with 25 to 30 petals apiece and enough sweet fragrance to attract butterflies and other pollinators. Each flower has a butter-yellow centre, a white base and light pink outer petals, giving it the look of delicate, hand-painted porcelain. This is an upright, moderately spreading rose with attractive, dark green foliage. Offers good resistance to powdery mildew and rust fungus.

||Roses bloom the best in full sun. Choose a location with at least 6 hours of sun per day. Morning sun is more kind to the plant.
||Rich, sandy loam is the preferred soil for roses. Amend difficult soils with humus, or consider building up the beds to ensure good drainage. Roses will not tolerate soggy, wet roots. Provide a slow, deep soaking with each irrigation. Sandy soils require more watering than clay soils. Hot temperatures should prompt more frequent irrigation. Only wet the foliage in very early morning hours.
