This is one of my favorite roses for many reasons..the health and vigor of the very shrubby plant. The almost continuous rebloom. The lemony, sweet fragrance. The old fashioned form of the blooms and the delicate coloring. The plant tends to want to grow to about 5' tall and 4' wide. The fragrance on mine was not apparent at first but very noticeable after a few months. Many northern gardeners comment that it is exceptionally hardy.
