Buck Rose - Malaguena

Malaguena (1976)

Medium pink shrub. The long-ovoid, pointed buds open to double (25-30 petals), shallow-cupped, 4-4.5 inch blooms of pale geranium pink (RHSCC 47D) are stippled on the inner surface of the petals with dark claret rose (RHSCC SOA). The blooms are borne in clusters of 5-10 and have a slightly sweet fragrance. The abundant, large, leathery foliage is dark green. The thorns are red-brown and awl-like. The bushy plant is erect and free-flowering from June until killing frost. The plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
