Buck Rose - Polka Time

Polka Time (1984)

Orange pink shrub. The ovoid-pointed buds of medium salmon (RHSCC 27C) open to double (35-40 petals), cupped, imbricated, 4-4.5 inch blooms of salmon tinted Chinese yellow (RHSCC 20B) veined with flamingo pink (RHSCC 37A). The blooms are borne in clusters of 1-10 and have a sweet fragrance. The abundant, leathery foliage is dark green and tolerant of disease. The thorns are tan and awl-like. The bushy plant is low and compact and in bloom from early June until killing frost. The plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
