This rose has a strong scent and a delightful apricot colour. Has a compact neat looking bush. Needs well drained soil. Has a good life as cut flower in the vase.

I am not sure. Haven't seen a nurseryman in Islamabad who knows about it. Actually, I have seen very few David Austin roses being sold in Islamabad, except Sharifa Asma which can be purchased from every second nursery. Sharifa Asma is the one that you see in the back ground in the second picture.

KBW's Comments
A beautiful rose with light sweet fragrance and abundance of medium sized flowers in clusters. Blooms continually. Foliage is quite attractive, abundance of small size lightly coloured leaves, a little different from most other roses.
