    Survives zone 5 winters with almost no protection at all and no winterkill. This is its 3rd year in the ground. Expecting it to get about 8-10ft as it's already over 5' tall right now. Eastern face, rocky nasty hard soil, watered VERY sparingly. A true xeric rose.

    Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
    "Although the bush is not typical of the class because of its darker leaves and more upright form, this is indeed an extremely hardy rose. With its clear, double, rose red flowers that pale to pink, this fragrant rose is perfect for a large hedge. Its reddish stems are a nice winter accent."
