(Northern Hardy) The old standby that still keeps on performing. Vigorous and spreading, this plant is awash with double, deep pink flowers throughout the growing season and is nearly care free with glossy, disease-resistant foliage.
No fancy pruning needed. Cut back by 2/3rds annually in late winter or early spring. Trim to shape anytime of year, if desired. The bush is self-cleaning with few rose hips, no dead-heading required, petals fall away cleanly.
