Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Medium, pink clusters of small-fringed blooms decorate this heavily prickled bush. Although easily maintained at five feet or more, this rose can tolerate closer pruning should a smaller height be desired. A rather vigorous bush, its typical growth habit is wider than it is tall. Pink Grootendorst blooms heavily and repeats throughout the season with blooms more reminiscent of carnations rather than roses, making a striking contrast to the foliage. This rose is a sport of F. J. Grootendorst."

I love hardy own-root roses!

When I saw a healthy own-root specimen of this rose in Walmart for $5, it leaped into my cart! I need some more "tough guys" to keep William Baffin company at the edge of the yard.

I have been admiring pictures of this rose for a while, so I was delighted to find one locally: at Walmart, of all places.
