The thick canes are covered with nail-like prickles. For specimen planting, fence, hedge or impenetrable barrier.

Stunning single redReview by KatieRose
This lovely rose has flat scarlet open blooms saturated with color. It is an easy bush to care for as it is tolerant of some shade, strong winds, severe cold, and black spot. A very easy, gorgeous flowered rose you must see in person to really appreciate. (Posted on 9/4/2017)
Great RosesReview by Bill and Nan
Terrific Rose, We have 3 of them here in northern Wisconsin, and they winter very well virtually bug free. Best fertilizer for we found was bayer rose. (Posted on 7/27/2017)
Best Red Rose I've Ever Grown!Review by Cathy B.
Without a doubt, this is an excellent, tough, surprisingly gorgeous red rose! Mine grows, with very little attention from me, in a very windy location, and it has triumphed through wind, snow, ice, and hail here in my Finger Lakes area of NY state garden. Probably the worst weather condition plants in my garden face is a fierce wind - we are on an ooen hilltop. I had no idea that it would be so tall (you can use it as a climber, if you can brave the thorns to tie it up), or that it would have such a pleasant (but mild) rose fragrance. The thorns on this baby are truly a force to be reckoned with, though - don't grow it where little kids - or anyone else - is likely to get punctured! In my fantasy garden, I would use these to surround my vegetable garden, providing a living fence against critters of all sorts. It gets a little mangy looking as the summer wears on, and while it does get aphids they don't seem to bother it much; I hack off the top third or so of the tallest canes regularly, after a flush of blooms is done, and this baby just comes back with more. Starts early, stays late to the party! (Posted on 12/31/2014)
Robusta is well named!Review by Mike's Mom in NYS
This is a gorgeous rose! It is a strong caned, ever blooming display of the most lovely deep red roses. I live in Western New York State and this is hit with weather from the west and the north. No problems. No black spot. A few aphid surges easily gotten rid of with soapy solution of your choice. This picture does not do the bush justice. You won't be disappointed. (Posted on 6/21/2013)
