Comments Most observers agree that Kathleen as a plant in full bloom, covered with its highly artistic five-petalled flowers creates an effect more beautiful than the sum of its parts. The flowers have an almost mathematical elegance. The plant is nicely branched and well foliated. The fragrance is of musk, and the floral profusion is astounding. The young canes are flexible, so it can easily be trained on a wall or fence.
