Comments Dr. Van Fleet is identical to its more popular sport New Dawn except that the latter repeats. In both cases the plants make long, thorny canes which bear a generous supply of lightly fragrant pale pink flowers in late spring. The cold hardy plant is untroubled by fungal disease and is vigorous to a fault.
