Buck Rose - Frontier Twirl

Frontier Twirl (1984)

Pink blend shrub. The long-pointed, ovoid buds of capsicum red (RHSCC 33A) over a yellow base open to double (20-30 petals), shallow-cupped to open, 4-4.5 inch blooms of empire rose (RHSCC 48C) veined darker (RHSCC 48A). The blooms are borne in clusters of 1-8 and have a moderately strong, sweet fragrance. The abundant, leathery, medium bronzy-green foliage is coppery when young. The thorns are tan and awl-like. The erect, bushy plant is freely branching and blooms freely from June until killing frost. The plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
