I have seen this Hybrid Musk Rose completely fill and arch 10 feet over a rose trellis and weigh it
down heavily. The Kathleen Rose blossoms are about 1.5 inches across and pale pink. They look like
very large apple blossoms. The buds of Kathleen are a pastel pink. Kathleen will bloom repeatedly
until I prune it in December. Though the period between blooms is longer with this rose than many
others Kathleen does repeat reliably. This is one enthusiastic rose.
The Kathleen Rose was hybridized by Joseph Pemberton in 1922 in a cross between 'Daphne' and
'Perle des Jeannes'.
