I remember reading in Susan Irvine's 2nd book about this rose and had to buy
a couple to include in my garden... placed it near the gazebo. A prickly little
bush with tiny ferny leaves and tiny black hips, it only flowers in mid spring
but in the autumn the leaves change colour making it a valuable addition. Mine
now share the spot with the modern release "Eyes For You" and they go well
together being of a similar sized bloom and complimentary colouring.
