This rose grows to huge proportions. One of mine is held up by three strong arbors and a garage roof. Another covers a gazebo and has sent some canes climbing all the way up a neighbor's oak tree.

The blooms are quite small, but they grow in clusters and cover the entire rose for about a month in spring. In my mild zone 9 climate, the rose reblooms late in fall, but only in a modest and barely visible flush. The blooms have no fragrance, which is a drawback, but the rose also has no thorns, which is a definite plus.

This is one of my favorites of all time. Spectacular when in bloom. It is thornless and blooms profusely in the Spring.
