Shrub.  Pioneer.  
Light yellow, pink highlights.  Mild fragrance.  Average diameter 2".  Small, double (17-25 petals), cluster-flowered, in small clusters bloom form.  Continuous (perpetual) bloom throughout the season.

USDA zone 5b through 9b.  Can be used for beds and borders, container rose, cut flower, garden or hanging basket.  Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom.  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.
