How long do flowers last? How's fragrance? Low or crazy amount of thorns?
Blooms are large, double and quite fragrant. They are very pale pink in color when they open, and gradually turn white and last about 2-3 days.
The fragrance is medium, sweet and fruity.
The canes are almost thornless and can be easily bent to train over a trellis or fence.
Does it bloom frequently in our summer months? Any other observation you want to include for this rose?
It has bloomed pretty much all year for me, since I bought it. It is a very fast growing climber
