Each year, the city of Aix-en-Provence celebrates calisson, provencal specialty based almond paste and candied fruits. Difficult to find a better correspondence between the flower and it will represent. The colors of orange yellow petals fading to white are those of the candy and the outer petals reflex forms simulate the oval Calisson. These flowers-confectionery are worn in clusters by a vigorous rose bush upright and with glossy foliage.
