Light shell pink. Double (17-25 petals) bloom form. Prolific, occasional repeat later in the season.
Thornless (or almost), upright. Large foliage. 5 to 7 leaflets.
Height: up to 6'7" (up to 200cm).
USDA zone 2b and warmer. Very hardy.
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.
Patent status unknown (to HelpMeFind).
