This plant has great rebloom and is said to be disease free in some areas but not others. I have seen it very well trained on an arbor, absolutely covered in blooms. It is so stout and sturdy that it can do well as a tall vase shaped shrub. It is very thorny. The large blooms are a blend of beautiful shades of orange and can vary in intensity and shadings. Infrequently they are yellow with orange shadings. There is a light fragrance. Bred by Kordes in 1969, hardy from zone 5.
