This rose has grown at a staff person's home for a least 40 years, possibly quite a bit longer as their home is turn of the century. In the spring the wall of pink bloom is amazing as is the fragrance. The blooms are large and cupped and full, the petals are rolled back at the tips giving the rose a distinctive appearance. The bush can grow quite large if you allow it, we say the bigger the better to show off its spring display. The canes are arching and this rose is a good candidate for pegging. Healthy and hardy.
