Buck Rose - Pipe Dreams

Pipe Dreams (1984)

Medium pink shrub. The ovoid-pointed buds of crimson-carmine (RHSCC 52 A-B) open to double (25-30 petals), cupped, open, 4.5-5 inch two-tone blooms of dark spinel red (RHSCC 54B) on the petal reverse and light spinel red (RHSCC 54D) on the petal face. The blooms are borne in clusters of 5-10 and have an intense cloverose fragrance. The abundant, leathery foliage is medium olive green with good tolerance to foliar disease. The thorns are red-brown and awl-shaped. The compact, 2.5-3 ft plant is bushy and blooms from early June until killing frost. The plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
