New Dawn, when it gets enough water and good soil, grows quickly and is fairly free of disease. Its high-centered flowers have a light fragrance.

Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"This healthy climber, a repeat blooming sport of Dr. W. Van Fleet, bears long, full-pointed buds which are soft pink and fade to blush-cream as the flower opens fully. The foliage maintains a lustrous, dark green hue throughout the growing season. Give this vigorous rambler plenty of room to grow and you will be rewarded by years of beauty and fragrance."
