A very healthy rose, flowering whole season. Can be used for ground cover. Produces decorative hips. Awards: Gold Medal Rome in 2003.

Actually this rose is bred by Ann Boudolf. Ann Boudolf and her husband Rudi Velle took over the Louis Lens nursery in 1992. (In Belgium, maiden names are not changed upon marriage. However, Ann Boudolf is known as Ann Velle internationally).
