Buck Rose - September Song

September Song (1981)

Apricot blend grandiflora. The large, ovoid to urn-shaped buds of Mars orange (RHSCC 31 C) tinted red open to double (25-30 petals), slightly cupped, open, 4.5-5 inch blooms of Mars orange over a white base which pales to coral pink (RHSCC 38D) with age. The blooms, borne singly and in clusters of 5-8, have a fruity fragrance. The semi-glossy, leathery foliage is dark olive green tinted copper. The brown thorns are thin and awl-like. The erect, 3-3.5 ft plant is bushy and blooms continually from early June until killing frost. Plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
