Buck Rose - Barn Dance

Barn Dance (1975)

Light pink shrub. The ovoid, pointed buds open to double (20-25 petals), shallow-cupped, 3-4 inch blooms of neyron rose (RHSCC 55B) to pale carmine (RHSCC 52D) over yellow ground, giving the effect of salmon to shrimp pink. The blooms are borne in clusters of 5-15 and have a light, wild rose fragrance. The abundant, leathery, medium-sized foliage is pale green aging to dark green. The thorns are green and awl-like. The bushy, 3 X 3 ft plant is shrub-like and blooms very freely in June and at intervals until killing frost. The plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
