Kordes reccomended this rose as the best to introduce sweetbriar genes into crosses. I do not remember the source, but others have found it true. Its seedlings often have the distinct briar smell.

The question is how strongly its seedlings express the genes for the foliage scent. It seems like the genetic trait has to be reintroduced through several generations in order to demonstrate itself in its descendents.

I wonder if backcrossing and clever hybridizing could create a truly continuous flowering sweetbriar.
