A flower of beautifully mixed shades of pink, apricot and yellow, giving the overall impression of apricot. At the bud stage, when the petals are just starting to unfurl, the inside of the petals are a very rich, deep apricot, contrasting with the paler, soft yellow undersides. When fully open, the center of the flower is still well filled with petals.

There is a strong and beautiful myrrh fragrance. This is a variety that particularly enjoys the climate of the USA.
Carding Mill is an extremely beautiful valley in the Long Mynd in the UK.
