This rose's popularity increased dramitically under a the found name “Caldwell Pink”. It has turned out to be one of the best landscape roses for hot and humid climates. Although it starts to bloom later than most of the other roses, it stays in bloom constantly from then on. Unfortunately, there is no scent, but if you need a good hedge rose this is one of the best ones to plant. The blooms are in clusters, light pink with lots of petals. It will grow up to 4 feet, but can easily be pruned to the size you want.
Bred in United Kingdom by George Lilley.
