Buck Rose - Alamande-Ho

Allamand-Ho! (1984)

Pink blend shrub. The ovoid-pointed buds open to double (35-40 petals), shallow-cupped, 4-4.5 inch blooms of a blend of orient pink (RHSCC 36C) and lemon yellow (RHSCC 14C) and margined with ruby red (RHSCC 60C). The colors intensify with age and spread over the petal surface. The blooms are borne in clusters of 1-6 and have a pleasant, sweet fragrance. The abundant, leathery foliage is dark green (RHSCC 139A) and semi-glossy. The thorns are red-brown and awl-like. The erect, bushy plant is 3-4 feet tall and blooms abundantly from June until killing frost. The plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
