At home in the rose garden.

Bred by Herbert C. Swim (United States, 1956).
Introduced in United States in 1956 as 'Moonsprite' a floribunda.
Cream, golden-yellow center. Strong fragrance. 80 petals. Average diameter 2.5". Medium, very full (41+ petals),
cluster-flowered, in small clusters, cupped, old-fashioned, rosette bloom form.
Blooms in flushes throughout the season. Short, bushy. Semi-glossy, leathery foliage.
Can be used for beds and borders, container rose, cut flower or garden.

[Note from Help Me Find] Note from me follows.

The blooms are quite continuous, but you have to keep up to date with dead-heading.
The bush is quite small, the flowers borne above the bush in small clusters.
