Stems are near thornless, but there are prickles under the rachis/petiole. The dark foliage on a well nourished plant contrasts nicely with the white flowers. The small hips are attractive in fall and winter. It is very densely branched and blooms abundantly. The overall plant habit is mounded and very symmetrical.
