In my garden: It has rather large flowers for a relatively small plant. Drooping growing habit, but that is just nice in containers. I do not particularly appreciate orange and pink blooms on the same plant at the same time, so I deadhead it early. Impressive disease resistance. It is a very eager rose and blooms late into the season.
Named after: German brothers Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm who collected and popularized German folklore tales. We owe them fairy tale stories like Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel, Snow White.
