Countryside Roses state in their online catalog, these are light pink single roses with an ivory center accented by yellow stamens cascade from this rose in masses during spring, and repeat blooms periodically through the season. The petals on each rose are somewhat narrow and barely touch, creating a simple but charming flower. Foliage is dark green and glossy. Zones 5-9.
