Apricot-yellow buds open to shallowly cupped, many petalled rosettes. They are a beautiful belnd of subtle apricot-pink and soft
yellow, giving the overall impression of apricot, with creamy outer petals. There is a superb floral myrrh fragrance, with hints of
honey and Tea. It forms a vigrous climber.
The name was inspired by the heroine of Thomas Hardy’s Far from the Madding Crowd.
