This is my favorite hybrid musk. It is a large, sturdy, shrubby plant to about 8x8' . It can also be beautiful as a climber. It absolutely covers itself in big trusses of blooms in flushes all season long. It will be a mass of blooms, then take a few weeks rest and do it again. The lovely blooms are medium sized and tend to nod gracefully. They are a beautiful apricot blend and have one of the most powerful, intoxicating fragrances of all my roses. It has average blackspot susceptibility or maybe a little better. Bred by Pemberton in 1928, rated as hardy from zone 4. text.
