(From the 1997/1998 Edmunds Catalog:) a hardy, fragrant new climber in this color class because there are no others. Apricot gold clusters with a rich, fruity fragrance and wonderful glossy, dark green foliage that is especially resistant to blackspot. It's finally the perfect rose for Midwest and East Coast [US] gardeners that want a yellow climber that will live through the winter. It is a sport of 'Westerland'.
