This rose grows here at our local library (7b) next to the parking lot, among the roots - and partially in the shade of - silver maples. It thrives under conditions of almost total neglect. Of some dozen different roses planted there, only Mary Manners and the Knockout are doing well. Most of the others did not even survive. It blooms pretty much all spring, summer, and into the fall. It does get blackspot, but it refoliates more or less and keeps on blooming.

It is an open, angular, leggy, thorny bush, about 4 or 5 feet tall and 2 or 3 feet wide. The foliage is a light, clear yellow-green, but pretty sparse by the end of the season. The smell is lemony and spicy, and strong enough to smell from a couple of feet away.
