Comments Narrow Water is a moderately cold-hardy noisette that produces white flowers just less than two inches across and in quantities sufficient to obscure the foliage. The flowers arem mildly fragrant, and the canes are well armed with sharp prickles. Noisettes are thought of to be climbers, but sometimes it takes special efforts to train them into the job. This is certainly true of Blush Noisette. Nastarana, too, naturally makes a head-high shrub.
