This rose has a very pleasant fragrance. Although it is not "commercial" I have grown it since 1980 and occasionally use it as a parent because of its fragrance and its potential for cold-hardiness through Golden Wings. It is from one of the first shrub rose crosses I made. I made the cross in 1978, but the seeds were slow to germinate, and this seedling didn't appear until 1980. I keep it just because I like it..
