Buck Rose - Dorcas

Dorcas (1984)

Pink blend shrub. The ovoid-pointed buds of azalea pink (RHSCC 38C) open to double (35-45 petals), shallow-cupped, open, 4-5 inch blooms of azalea pink overlaying pale yellow which is heavily stippled with empire rose (RHSCC 48C). The blooms have a light, pleasing fragrance and are borne in clusters of 8-10. The abundant, leathery dark green foliage is coppery-tinted when young. The thorns are tan and awl-like. the erect plant is bushy and blooms freely from June until killing frost. the plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
