Graham Stuart Rose Book, 1994 edition - Page 183
'Frühlingsmorgen' Kordes, Germany, 1941. A hybrid of 'E. G. Hill' x 'Cathrine Kordes' crossed with Rosa pimpinellifolia 'Grandiflora'. I hesitate to claim that this is the most beautiful of all roses with single (five-petalled) flowers: there are so many claimants. But appraising a flowering spray can easily suggest that here is a rare example of the breeder's art which equals if it does not eclipse nature's best efforts. Apart from the beauty of the clear rose-pink large petals which pass to clear, pale yellow in the centre, the flowers have the incomparable attraction of maroon coloured filaments and anthers. It usually gives a crop of flowers in late summer as the generous mass in the spring. The bush is on the sparse side, leaves leaden green. 6 feet by 5 feet. A few large, maroon-red heps are produced.

Thank you true-blue. It is a good description.
Mine looks revolting with much dead wood that needs to be cut out. Any advice? Cut revolting canes right back to the base, or just halfway to good wood?

Patricia, You might ask Marnix for some advice, for he's a Frühlings- and Spinosissima(-hybrid)-collector and "freak"... Of-course I mean Spino-lover.

I am not familiar with any Spins let alone Frühlings series, unfortunately.
My understanding is that they are suitable for regions with cool springs/summers.

Dead canes can be removed anytime. Other pruning and shaping should be done right after the spring bloom. The new wood that grows back will bloom the following spring as this one blooms on "old" wood.
This is the strategy we use in cold climates.

Thank you Jay-Jay, true-blue and Margit. ....Blooms on "old" wood was exactly what I needed.
I'll get in there and tackle it when it gets cooler and the snakes have gone to bed. (Nearly trod on a newie on Friday - a little Gould's Black Headed Snake. Only mildly venemous but nevertheless, a reminder to only go where I can see the ground.)

Fruhlingsmorgen is the first rose to bloom every year in my Michigan garden and it covers itself in blooms.  It has a lovely fragrance and is very winter hardy.  It's petals close in the evening.
