Frühlingsmorgen Kordes, Germany, 1941. A hybrid of 'E. G. Hill' x 'Cathrine Kordes' crossed with Rosa pimpinellifolia Grandiflora'. I hesitate to claim that this is the most beautiful of all roses with single (five-petalled) flowers: there are so many claimants. But appraising a flowering spray can easily suggest that here is a rare example of the breeder's art which equals if it does not eclipse nature's best efforts. Apart from the beauty of the clear rose-pink large petals which pass to clear, pale yellow in the centre, the flowers have the incomparable attraction of maroon coloured filaments and anthers. It usually gives a crop of flowers in late summer as well as the generous mass in the spring. The bush is on the sparse side, leaves leaden green. 6 feet by 5 feet. A few large, maroon-red heps are produced.

In the 1930s, Kordes produced the lovely large shrubs which share the prefix 'Frühlings' (spring) by crossing the 'Burnet Rose' with Hybrid Teas. All do well on sandy soils and in cold gardens where most roses grow poorly.
