My "Kathryn Morley" grew very fast during its first year here in zone 8, Oregon. Very disease resistant. It produced tons of blooms continuously in the summer. I love its large flowers which are light pink with a hue of yellow tone at the center. Foliage are medium green.

This rose is the lovliest shade of pink and has a very nice form. It's a bit sprawly as a plant and I don't like it's habit, but the blooms make up for that. It's pretty hardy in zone 5 with just a little protection.
