Buff Beauty Is Just That
I fell in love with the hybrid musk rose, 'Buff Beauty' while visiting a garden on a tour about eight years ago. It was used as a climber and I guess I never realized it wasn't actually classified as a climber until many years later. It does stretch nicely over an arch I have in my Laguna garden and is an easy rose to love. It has a lovely fragrance, blooms off and on throughout the growing season and has few problems with disease that I have experienced. I don't see it very often in nurseries for sale, but I would spend the time to seek it out. The peachy color of the blooms vary based on the amount of sun it gets, but every shade is soft and lovely. One of my favorites!
