This long lived variety, which is classed as an old garden rose, China, by some authorities, patently has its origins in Asia, although authorities are divided between Rosa Multiflora and R.Chinensis, Almost thornless, it repeatedly produces large clusters of very small, perfectly shaped pink blooms. The long, pointed buds open to pale, silvery pink blooms. The perfectly formed miniature blooms are double and rise above light red peduncles. It is a climbing bush with sparse dull green foliage but is very healthy. The continuous blooming is one reason that is has been so popular for so long, The scent is sweet and slightly spicy. Named for the daughter of Ulrich Brunner, renowned rose grower at Lausanne, Switzerland. Highly recommended
