'Apple Blossom'. Breeder: Jackson Dawson, 1890 United States.  Parentage: 'Dawson' x Rosa multiflora.  Class: hybrid multiflora (rambler).   This is a rose blooming once in a massive display. The flowers are rosy pink, semi-double and carried in small to medium clusters.  The plant has very vigorous shrubby growth to 15 or 16 feet (4.5 to 5 meters).  This is the 'Apple Blossom' most often seen and the one often wrongly attributed to Burbank.
