Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Cornelia makes a fine climber, but our favorite way to grow this rose is as a specimen plant where its long gracefully arching canes display their full beauty. The thick, dark foliage will be covered with clusters of small coral buds that open pink with gold stamens. If grown as a climber, this rose will reach 8 to 12 feet."
