Breeder's notes:
Open pollinated seedling of George Will, obviously by Betty Bland. Grows 2m tall, rather upright, very hardy. Nice red bark, relatively thornless. Flowers larger and fuller than Betty Bland, a light self-pink, rather than two-toned. Blooms heavily early in season, with a scattering of bloom the rest of the summer. Sets seed. Worth growing, but I doubt it is distinctive enough to be worth introducing.
