‘Applejack’ = Arbuste – tons roses, remontant. Ne redoutant ni les frimas, ni la canicule, ce grand arbuste accomodant produit à foison des boutons pointus qui se muent en fleurs floues, presque plates, d’une dizaine de pétales un peu froissés, rose pur émoustillé de rouge. Un frais parfum de pomme lui vaut son nom qui fleure bon le calvados du Nouveau Monde… Sa rusticité est à toute épreuve. Buck, USA, 1973.

Griffith J. Buck. Roses Are Shrubs?
'Summer Pippen' (tentative name). 'Goldbusch' x ('Josef Rothmund' x R. laxa, Retzius). This plant has been under observation more than ten years because of its unusual combination of Sweet Brier-scented foliage, intensely clove fragrant flowers, and reliable remontant flowering habit. The plant is big, (growing to a mature height of 7 feet), with a corresponding spread. The habit is erect to slightly arching. There is a profuse flowering in early June, followed by lesser intermittent crops of flowers at monthly intervals through the rest of the season. The flowers are large, 4 inches in diameter, with 10-15 petals; opening flat from an ovoid-pointed bud. The color is clear Neyron-rose, with a stippling of crimson down the midribs of the petals. Although the normal growth habit of the plant is such that a large plant results, shorter height may be maintained by careful pruning.
