The Rosa Mundi blooming at the E.M. Mills Rose Garden in Syracuse appears to have half striped, and half a solid pink color. Either a reversion or a seedling?

However, the PINK of both the striped and solid versions is MUCH lighter than the reddish pink seen in most pictures. Going to post pics soon.

The 1975 reference is interesting.

How bristly is this rose? I've read only one comment that it is thornless, and haven't found any others.

This bicoloured sport of The Apothecary`s Rose has been in my garden for many years. It doesn`t seem to grow as tall as I had expected, which is why I probably should have planted her a bit more up front. However visitors in my garden seldom fail to notice her. As have people ever since the Middle Ages. In Scandinavia she is often known as "Polkagrisros(e)" so named for the classical red and white striped candy. She sports many canes ,often thin,from the ground. My advice is to cut back some of the older, thinner ones regularily, so as to avoid a broomlike appearance. A living antique, she is well worth growing.
