Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Particularly nice when trained as a climber, this rose was a Gold Medal winner for the National Rose Society in 1914. The scented blossoms open in clusters from small copper buds, showing slightly ruffled salmon colored petals, and of course it repeats. If grown as a climber, this rose will reach 8 to 12 feet."
