Rosa 'Buff Beauty' - Categorized as hybrid musk, with the Noisette heritage of this beautiful apricot-buff colored rose showing up in both the perfumed fragrance and the larger many petaled flowers. This rose was raised and introduced in 1939 by Anne and John Bentall and is thought to possibly be one of the original Pemberton Roses. Its parentage is listed as 'William Allen Richardson' a Noisette bred in 1878 crossed with a seedling. The dark red new shoots, bronze new foliage and thick dark green leaves are additional features that typify the versatility of this plant; it can be grown as a low wide growing shrub or as the an elegant pillar rose. Rosa 'Buff Beauty' repeat blooms well, even in indirect light, fading rapidly to ivory-cream in bright, full sun. Its floral display improves with each year that the plant is established. We so like 'Buff Beauty' that we have planted it in several location within our nursery, our oldest plant is in the main nursery garden and others adorn fence lines behind our accounting office and main shadehouse. Winner of the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit in 1993.
