The large flowers grow on a bush with shiny green foliage, making it a very disease resistant bush.

The lovely pink colored blooms are only slightly fragrant, and begin with coral pink buds that eventually open flat and fade to a very light pink.

Once fully open they display an attractive mass of loose petals in the center of the flower.

 The healthy growing, vigorous bush is quite thorny and have stiffer canes than most ramblers, making them suitable for growing up a tree, or for tying to the side of the house.

It is also semi-shade tolerant. Not fully shade tolerant....But if you have a spot that is slightly shaded, you can plant Alida Lovett here.

It is most useful for planting on a fence or pergola.

It was bred by Walter Van Fleet, but introduced by J. T. Lovett in Little Silver N.J. He named this rose after one of his daughters 'Alida'.
