Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"This vigorous and tall shrub of six feet produces 2 1/2 inch flowers of soft pink from spring through fall. Due to its cold hardiness, this rose can be used in difficult areas when other roses have failed."

Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"This seedling of "Katy Road Pink" and ‘Mrs. Oakley Fisher’ was produced by the Antique Rose Emporium. Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas selected this rose for its reblooming qualities and are patenting it under their namesake. The long-pointed, pink bud opens to a 3 inch, semi-double, flat flower of pale pink fading into a yellowish eye. The floral display of this rose is as beautiful in the fall as in the Spring."
