Notes:
In September 1998, the Montreal Botanical Garden (Le Jardin Botanique de Montreal) carried out a survey of its roses' resistance to black spot, powdery mildew and rust. This is one of the outstanding varieties which showed a 0% to 5% infection rate. The data were taken on well-established roses.


The Swedish Rose Society recommends Henry Hudson for northern Sweden.

Dr. Felicitas Svejda describes the parentage as "2 cycles of open pollination of R. rugosa 'Schneezwerg' " {Elliott]
