Comments Where it is cold hardy this rose's warm pink blossoms light up the garden. Mrs B.R. Cant is vigorous and can grow large. In Texas, the rose can reach 8 ft in each direction. And there is some question about the actual color of the blossoms. In some cases they are a rich rose color, but the rose also produces some yellow pigment which can darken them and give them coral, orange, or dark brick red tones. There is some fragrance to the flowers. Where it is reliably cold hardy the plant is almost unconditionally vigorous and disease free.
