I just looked this rose up in my reference books, Botanica's Roses & ARS Encyclopedia of Roses.
The plant grows slowly, with a thin twiggy structure, somewhat ungainly, but it is very floriferous, especially if lightly pruned. It also says it's one of the healthiest roses and is a lovely cut flower.
