Compact shrub rose with glossy green foliage. Pink flowers, double ruffled (petal count 17-25) held in large clusters. Slight fragrance. Very heavy bloomer through summer and fall. In fall, orange-red fruit adds to interest.
Full sun, well-drained soil. Prune by the renewal method removing about one-third of the older canes to soil line in the spring as needed to keep the shrub open and new canes in production. Prune the stem back to a branch angle (a process called heading back) as needed to reduce width and height.
