Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Climbing Pinkie is one of our favorite roses for use in many garden niches. The nearly thornless canes are easy to work with when training it as a climber, but it will also grow without support as a graceful, cascading shrub. Once established, it is very difficult to catch this rose out of bloom and the flushes of scented, semi-double flowers simply smother the bush in bright rose pink. One plant on each side of your gate or driveway will turn your yard into a traffic hazard."
