Complicata: a deceiving name for this simple 5-petaled, single-bloom rose. I found it this weekend in Brooklyn, NY, and immediately noticed there was something very special about its deep, silky texture and its sprinkle-like bright yellow anthers, which make it a stunning sight. It has no thorns, and is so delectably scented that it makes itself vulnerable to honey bees and flower-pickers alike. Luckily, the shrub is a hardy one. It is very robust and reliable through the winter months, flowering in summer for a fantastic display which lasts for 6 to 8 weeks. Highly recommended for your garden at home!
