A direct descendant of a botanical species: Rosa multiflora. This variety, however, is continuous-flowering (all summer round, sometimes very late until December), whereas the botanical species only bloom once. The large, single flowers grow in clusters and are pink with a white centre. New shoots grow also at the base of the plant, thus renewing the bloom. According to the way in which the rose is pruned, it can be used in parterres or as a shrub rose. The planting distance in parterres is 60 cm; whereas a distance of more than 100 cm is appropriate if used as a shrub rose.
