Medium sized, slightly open flowers of distinctly cupped formation. These are held well apart in open sprays, nodding on their stems to look at you.

The colour is pale buff apricot, turning almost to white. Altogether a most elegant rose.

The fragrance is very strong and both remarkable and unusual; an English Rose myrrh character with lemon and almond blossom.

St. Cecilia is the patron saint of music and musicians.
