Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"When ‘Belinda’ is in bloom, it is difficult to look at anything else. The large clusters of hot pink flowers have a white eye in each small blossom, but the effect from a distance is pink all over. We find it makes a stunning climber and is also excellent for hedging. Like most of the Hybrid Musks ‘Belinda’ tolerates areas of partial shade quite well. If grown as a climber, it will reach 6 to 10 feet."
