Buck Rose - Sevilliana

Sevilliana (1976)

Pink blend shrub. The ovoid-pointed buds of light claret rose (RHSCC 50C) open to double (15-20 petals), slightly-cupped to open, 3.5-4 inch blooms of light claret rose with spinel red (RHSCC 54A) "freckles" and with a yellow flush spreading from the petal base. The blooms, borne singly and in clusters of 5-15, have a spicy fragrance. The leathery foliage is mid-green with copper tints and semi-glossy. The thorns are redbrown and awl-like. The erect, 3 x 2 ft plant is bushy and free-flowering from June until killing frost. Plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
