Mine has SUPER strong scent. Like anise? Really strong. Far more fragrant than Sunsprite. But its a cold tender rose, and Sunsprite isn't.

I would compare canes, reproductive parts, and prickles. I can tell by one photo of the canes that it is not pure primula. I just could not tell what else beyond primula it is.

Before I read the description and had only seen pictures of this rose, it struck me how similar to R. spinosissima it is.

Maybe but I'm not so sure such was possible. As Rosa primula generally blooms much earlier in the year in my garden and has stopped blooming before R. spinosissima starts. I can go back and look to see for the year I collected the hip Gizi's Rose came from what was blooming at the same time as R. primula. I do have multiple other species very close to R. primula that do bloom at the same time, such as R. fedschenkoana (repeats) and R. borissovae (which also repeats). Two of the R. primula seedlings from this one hip also repeat bloom. Both of them are white. The 3 yellow flowering seedlings are once bloomers.

Mine bloomed this week. Kind of an unusual color. Not like most apricot roses. The petal face is sherbert apricot-orange. The reverse is a lemony sherbet apricot. So its a 2-toned rose, that looks pure apricot from a distance.

Too young to comment on health yet.

This rose, from what I have seen, has dark electric coral blooms, with classic HT form. They are not overly large, about French Lace size, but there are a lot of them.

I got this rose in an auction and the hot coral pink color description is right one the mark.
