Compact and very vigorous shrub rose. Medium green foliage. Large clusters of pink blooms, semi-double, one-inch wide (petal count 9-16). Slight fragrance. A continuous (perpetual) bloomer throughout the season.


Full sun, well-drained soil. Prune by the renewal method removing about one-third of the oldest canes in the spring to soil line as needed to keep shrub open and new canes in production. Prune the stem back to a branch angle (a process called heading back) as needed to reduce width and height.


Excellent rose for the mixed border. Dark pink blooms with white eye fades to light pink. Very hardy.
