A vigorous medium-sized shrub with fragrant, rosette-shaped flowers, opening coppery-apricot and gradually fading to coppery-pink as they mature. Occasional large, hooked thorns. It has dark green pointed leaves; the petioles have small prickles. Grow in fertile, moist, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Provide good air circulation and remove fallen leaves to help prevent disease. Prune lightly or back by up to 1/3, reducing side shoots by 1/2 to 1/3. To renovate, prune one in four or five shoots from the base.
