Sidney Hockbridge, a California nurseryman, is sometimes credited with breeding this rose, but he is apparently responsible for popularising this variety in the Western U.S.

For clarification about parentage, see References. The seed from which Anemone was first grown originated in Asia, collected by the physician-botanist-Sinologist, Emil Bretschneider. The seed was sent to Europe and germinated there around 1884.

Nigel Pratt at Tasman Bay Roses says this rose has large, single flowers of silvery pink with a touch of mauve. It is best treated as a climber...

The San Jose Heritage Rose Garden's plant is virused but repeats well.
