The Lady of the Dawn rose produces the lightest pink (creamy blush colored) semi-double blooms, that are rimmed in a darker pink at the edges of the petals.
The large flowers open into flat saucers that reveal red and yellow stamens.
The delicate pink colored flowers are borne in large clusters, and can have as many as 20 blooms to a cluster.
The pretty, ruffled blooms are only lightly scented with a mild apple fragrance.

This Floribunda rose makes an excellent rose for a hedge or shrub. It also makes a nice border of roses with a beautiful habit of growing upright, with the canes arching down. The heavy, unusually large, round flower clusters cause the canes to bow. ( A beautiful effect)
Plant a row of them for a show of pink roses all season.
The rosebush produces flushes of flowers throughout the growing season, on a bush with dark green foliage that is mildew resistant.
It blooms on new wood, so be sure to prune early to promote new growth. Learn more about pruning roses here.
Although I don't grow this rose, my sources tell me, that even though it doesn't have much fragrance, the bush itself, is very beautiful, very hardy, and well worth growing! Hmm....I may give this one a try!
