Ken Nobbs: I was also growing smooth stem rambler roses using 'Tausendschon' and 'Veilchenblau', the former as seed parent. Neither of these two roses is fully thornfree, nevertheless a high proportion of the seedlings have a smooth stem except for hooks under the petioles of the midribs of the pinnate leaves..... Most of these seedlings have massed display of red hips to rival a cotoneaster. 'Tausendschon' passed on its floriferousness to four seedlings, which I have named Dr. Hayward', and ...These four, if new shoots are allowed to grow, produce pink buds and double pink fragrant blooms fading to white, and have one good flowering in the depth of winter, usually in August, as well as several periods of bloom during the year. Like 'Tausendschon' they need cleaning up, cutting back any dying shoots.
