This rose blooms very heavily. So many blooms open in the first flush a rain will over weight the stems, bearing them to the ground. The leaves have a slight glaucus cast with red edges in spring that is very attractive behind the pink/apricot blossoms. My shrub tends to be a closer to 4 feet tall and 3 wide. It has never shown any disease but receives regular fish/kelp or compost tea as foliar sprays. I find this rose to be strongly fragrant. I have it with Angel Face and they complement each other in both color and fragrance.
