Parentage unknown. First bloomed 2020, first propagated 2022. Mid-season to mid-late blooming BOMB flowers are light pink (RHS 56B) fading to white, 13cm (5″) in diameter, and average one to three per stem. High degree of fragrance noted – sweet and charming like a rose. Guard petals are twisted, rounded, ruffled, frilled, and notched. Reproductive structures are fully petalized; infertile. Plants reach 87cm (34.25″) at maturity, and carry narrow-pointed, green foliage. Foliage at time of emergence is also green. Growth habit is spreading, and the plant benefits from mechanical support. The middle of the flower with its delicate, irregular petals looks like a fairy hiding in a fairytale wonderland. With the change of hours, the flower turns from pink to white, like a mysterious elf that changes from day to night.
