Like the other Eglantines, in rain, or when stroked between the fingers the leaves of Catherine Seyton give off the scent of green apples. This makes a very large arching shrub which can also be trained to climb. In warm long season climates---California, etc.---it is said to bloom well in the fall. In most Zones expect spring bloom only. A generous hip display can be counted on in the fall. All in all, a sturdy delightful rose.
Introduced in 1895.
