Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Every garden needs a conversation piece and the ‘Green Rose’ definitely fits that bill. This most rewarding rose is always in bloom. Granted the blooms may be hard to detect, but once you know what you are looking at, you’ll find the bush is literally smothered. Perfect for floral arrangements or dried in bouquets, this rose lends its unique texture and contrasting color of green and bronze. Fragrance is spicy with a hint of pepper. You can expect continual bloom from this nicely rounded shrub throughout the season. A definite eye catcher!!"
