Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Often called 'Pink Cherokee', it has the vigor of R. laevigata but is much more open and dainty in its foliage, with something of the beauty of an oriental brush painting. We've seen this rose begin to bloom in February, showing its five, heart shaped, soft pink petals around a crown of golden stamens- a lovely sight against a grey winter sky. 'Anemone' is quite fragrant and often reblooms in the early summer after having kept up with the other wild roses all through the spring."
