The blooms, borne singly and in clusters from 2-10, have a light, pleasing fragrance. The medium-sized, abundant, leathery foliage is dark green tinted with copper. The thorns are tan and awl-like. The vigorous, bushy plant has a spreading habit and abundant bloom from June until killing frost. The plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
