USDA zone 5b through 9b. 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.
'Silver Shadows' and 'Blue Skies' were said to be sibling roses. However the parentage is different in both roses.
