Produces little or no pollen. Does not set hips. Hardy to the tips here in Zone 3, zero die back last year.

Last year was the second year I have had Polareis. The first year, flowers had very little fragrance, although the leaves and buds had a distinct "nutty" scent. In the second year, the flowers have definitely developed a light rose fragrance which can be noticed depending on the time of day.

Bright vibrant pink flowers, which bloom in large mass round clusters at the end of branches. Support is useful once flowering to keep upright. Although it blooms slightly later in the season for, it holds blooms later than all my other hardy roses, sometimes well into October here in zone 3. Blooms have a faint strawberry fragrance, which has become stronger as the years have gone by.

Attractive shiny green foliage with new growth tinged orange. Very resistant to blackspot and powdery mildew.

Foliage stays fresh until the last killing frost. However, there is significant dieback and plenty of thorny stems for me to cut back here in zone 3. However, the vigor of this rose is unmatched, it quickly grows into a four foot or more dense bush each year within a short time. I would describe it as a monster of a plant!

Flowers have very little pollen, and it does not set hips.

This rose is beautiful. It's newer but there aren't any sources or gardens listed. Is it/was it ever available in commerce?
