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.  Remove unproductive wood every third year or so.  
After field growing this rose the decision was made to NOT commercially introduce it. It is registered for exhibition purposes and to provide parentage background on other varieties. To the best of our knowledge it is not commercially available.
