A rose from the Easy Elegance Series by Bailey Nursery and Ping Lim. We grow this rose in our front garden bed by our sales cottage along with Tequila. The two never fail to elicit comments from customer. The gold of Tequila and salmony-orange of Patriot Dreams go together beautifully. This is a nice hardy rose with a double bloom of dark salmon/orange that seems to be always in bloom. Ping Lim is the hybridizer and so you know this will be a hardy, healthy rose.
