There's a color photograph of this rose in the November 1998 issue of the American Rose Society's American Rose magazine (p. 23).
According to the 1999 American Rose Annual, the Registered name has been changed to 'JACcinqo'.

B. Kragskow emailed these comments about 'Candelabra': I'm new to the art of growing roses however, I have had success with 'Candelabra'. I purchased this plant at C.J's Lawn and Landscape Co. here in Missouri Valley, Iowa. This rose has tripled it's size in height and width. In early June, one cane had a dozen perfect blooms in a bright coral/orange color. Each bloom was 3". I have it planted about 4 feet away from some purple Lupines, mainly because I use oak leaves and oak shavings to cover the entire area before our very cold winters here. As a result, the two color combinations is a breath taking sight. So far this rose has not shown any signs of black spot or powdery mildew.
