This is a tall, vigorous rose of a strong, yet somehow soft orange on scrolled petal with a gold reverse. The effect is rich, but not garish. Monica is one of the few roses that were here when we bought the property and began to plant the gardens seven years ago. I have come to thoroughly love and appreciate it. Blooms are borne usually one per cane on long stems. This is an extremely vigorous, superb cutting rose.
Introduced in 1985.
