Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Smoothly arching dark canes, neat green leaves, and dark yellow buds that open in creamy clusters give Dana a sophisticated appearance. Its graceful habit is at home whether in an informal hedge, trained neatly through a fence, or trailing its tips on a formal goldfish pond. Orange red hips in the fall contrast nicely with the last flowers. This is an elegant plant. If grown as a climber, this rose will reach 8 to 10 feet."
