Tall, bushy, thornless (or almost), upright.  Medium, semi-glossy, medium green foliage.

USDA zone 6b and warmer.  Can be used for beds and borders, container rose, cut flower or garden.  Produces decorative hips.  Disease susceptibility: very disease resistant.  Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.
