Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.
gigifarag reports: I bought this rose from a nursery in Santa Monica, California. I have never smelled anything as fragrant. I love it.
