Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"This Rugosa hybrid has proven itself vigorous in our hot, humid Texas summers but suprisingly only has moderate cold hardiness. The large, cupped flowers resemble peonies in form and are wild rose pink in color. Flowers are freely produced all through the growing season and the "roses and cloves" fragrance is outstanding."
