Orange blend Shrub.
Registration name: Star of the Republic
Exhibition name: Star of the Republic
Bred by Mike Shoup (United States, 2006).
Introduced in United States by Antique Rose Emporium (Brenham, Texas) in 1998 as 'Star of the Republic'.
Shrub.   (Series: Pioneer)  
Peach - apricot, buff outer petals.  Mild to strong, damask, myrrh fragrance.  Medium-large, very full (41+ petals), borne mostly solitary, old-fashioned, quartered bloom form.  Spring or summer flush with scattered later bloom.  
Tall, spreading, thornless (or almost).  Large, semi-glossy, dark green foliage.  

Height: 5' to 8' (150 to 245cm).  
USDA zone 5b through 9b.  Can be used for cut flower, garden, hedge or pillar.  Heat tolerant.  Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom.  Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. 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.
