My Noisette 'Gold Blush'

Since the seed parent was Rosa moschata and the pollen parent was 'Abraham Darby', I see this hybrid of mine, 'Gold Blush', as an archetypal Noisette in the manner of 'Champney's Pink' (Rosa moschata X Old Blush). In Denver it was a very cold hardy arching shrub, here in Tampa it is a stiff-caned climber. Thankfully, in both climates it has that soul-penetrating cinammon-clove scent of Rosa moschata. Here are some photos and a link to more about it at HelpMeFind, THE best roses website on the planet. John
