Buck Rose - Maytime

Maytime (1975)

Pink blend shrub. The ovoid-pointed buds open to single (6-10 petals), shallow-cupped, 3.5-4 inch blooms of carmine rose (RHSCC 52C) over a yellow base and having the effect of apricot-pink. The blooms are borne in clusters of 5-15 and are moderately sweet-scented. The abundant foliage is dark green and leathery. The thorns are green and awl-like. The erect, bushy, 3.5 x 3.5 ft plant is shrub-like and in continuous bloom from June until killing frost. The plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
