    Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
    "One of the first remontant climbers to be bred from ‘New Dawn’ and still one of the best! Clusters of very shapely buds open to double blossoms of soft pink with a darker pink reverse. This is a wonderful rose to use anywhere a colorful short climber or pillar rose with nice fragrance is needed. It is also known to be mildew resistant."
