Duet

This variety is getting old now (1960) but is still very popular. A rich pink with a darker tone on the underside of the petals, it has a medium fragrance and tends to be a little too thorny for my liking.

It won an ARS award the year after release (1961).

One of the redeeming features of the Duet is that the older blooms don't fade a lot. And if you can deal with the thorns then it makes a great cut flower with strong stems and upright blooms. It tends to do very well in the hotter climates, and might need a bit of frost protection in colder areas. Overall though, I would class this as easy to grow, and it is disease resitant. A strong healthy specimen is going to take a bit of vigorous pruning to keep it shapely.

Flowers in flushes throughout the season.
