Comments This is a relatively recent introduction from the Canadian breeding program that brought us Henry Kelsey and Jens Munk. With R. kordesii as two of the grandparents one can expect that this rose will be tough, disease free and cold hardy. Its blossoms are a darkish rose, almost crimson. And there is some fragrance. Most sources recommend training the rose as a climber.
