I'm thinking at your "winter" is actually a mild version of ours, with no freezing temps? the flower is lovely and looks like a vintage rose. I've only seen white ones, and this is gorgeous in its pink.
Yes, Sydney is relatively mild in Winter. We might get a few days in the middle where we get frost on the lawn.
Lovely with the sun shining through.
