Created in France by Delbard in 2004 and marketed in 2010, ‘Pink Paradise’ distinguishes for the unusual posture, colour and perfume.
Though being a Hybrid Tea, the flowers, just 6 cm broad, usually present in clusters. They have 30 petals, intense fuchsia pink with luminous yellow centre, but especially stand out for their intense anise fragrance.
The shrub, with solid bright dark green leaves, refractory to diseases, has vertical posture and may be 80 cm tall.
Ideal for spots of colour in the garden, with more surges, during the whole vegetative period.
