I love this rose. Small roses that are very pretty in form. Spreads out really really well and excellent near the front of borders or as ground cover. Very hardy. You don't have to baby it.

What a great little shrub rose! Not fussy, nice clean foliage, and has nice red flowers for most of the summer.
