My new plant of "Morning Blush" has just opened; the flowers look like the ones pictured here on the site, but it is quite thorny. Possibly the description here on HMF is incorrect?

I got mine about 6 years ago at a shovel pruning sale. It is spectacular for about a month in the spring. The flowers are lovely and cover the bush. I plan to move it to a 6 foot fence, as it grows like a huge thorny octopus. I live in the Desert Southwest and have had no trouble with disease. Highly recommend it if you have a large space for it. (in warm climates) It is very thorny so am putting it on a perimeter fence,

In the description it says "almost thornless". You might want to check if you got the right plant.

I got this rose this year from Home Depot. I am also enjoying a glorious first flush. These are some of the most beautiful and distinctive rose blooms I have ever seen. However, in my yard, zone 5a, cold and damp, the foliage looks wimpy. This might be, like some of the early Austins, a bush whose foliage is too scanty to support the amount of bloom. I am sure some fertilizing will be in order so soon as the first flush is over, and maybe some careful disbudding as well in future flushes.

I've had this rose less than a year, but so far I am extremely happy with it. I purchased it as a band last fall. It's planted in a spot with a fair amount of shade and not the best soil (very heavy clay and rocks) and is performing beautifully! I've only detected a slight fragrance. It was marketed as having no fragrance, so I'm pleased with what I've got, although the "Help Me Find" description says that it is very fragrant.

8/2009 Update
This rose developed a very bad case of downy mildew and was removed from my garden. In spite of the disease, it was a very vigorous grower, but I didn't want to risk it infecting other plants.
