This is a great cut flower. It lasted more then a week in a vase. Not too thorny, and have a strong frangrance. It have very few problems. The floral industry use it as guess what? bridal bouquets. Surprise, surprise. The pink color is so pastel and feminine. Stem is straight and strong to hold the bunch of large 4 in bloom and It doesn't care if you prune or not or even deadhead. It does make some big bunches of hips if you forgot to prune. If you cut it back too much it doesn't bother it at all a very easy rose to grow. Not easily available I believe it is from 1967. I happen to propagated it by cutting from a bouquet. I'm glad I did. All the brides out there should try to grow a rose bush from their wedding bouquet. I report no major disease in SF in growing it.
