Sweetly fragrant and thornless. I couldn't have asked for a better rose!

One of two of my first-time bareroot roses. Performed great, even bouncing back from an early deer attack. The first few blooms I got in summer (first buds lost to deer) opened to solid but bright yellow, and it wasn't until some cooler weather hit in the fall that I got the orange edging that was depicted on the JP box. But I've learned now how weather so greatly affects bloom color, and hopefully this spring I'll have pictures to add. Great hardy rose!
