Gorgeous tree that emerges really nice strong pink. It tends to hold its pink well into the season and enjoys some sun. Havent tried her in full sun all season but so far seems to be a lovely cultivar. She is just as nice as Kawahara rose but definitely a better stronger grower. She does turn gold/green in summer and orange and reds in autumn but its lovely to see the colour changes and seems to show better colours in a light area although will still flush pink in shade in spring.
