Just an observation, no experience with this species at all. Listed as thornless or nearly so, all pictures where canes are visible show thorns.

Thanks Plazbo. The references say
1988 few large thorns
1981 armed with hooked spines about ⅜ in. long
1917 a few hooked prickles.

The photos certainly show prickles (and a climber usually has prickles to haul itself up into the canopy). Not to mention that ‘Kiftsgate’ is said to be “viciously thorny”.
I’ll make it prickly pro tem.

It could be that the plant at Sangerhausen is mislabeled. Their own description from 1988 says "few large prickles", the photo from the rosary shows however a cane full of prickles.

I bought this rose this season, it's first few flowers in usual hot sunny conditions weren't a colour that really stood out, kind of deep pink like many pictures show. It may be the weather of late (La Nina....lots of rain and cloudy most days so cooler than usual) but it's distinctly a shade of purple now, kind of like a half way between a deep pink and plum.
