This rose is one result of the deliberate effort of the Antique Rose Emporium to produce garden friendly roses from a breeding program initiated by Dr Robert Basye at Texas A&M University. His ultimate goal was to introduce disease free roses. 'Pioneer Spirit' mimics the old Tea, 'Sombreuil', in flower and form except that it is pink. The 6 to 8 feet long canes hold shiny foliage and lightly fragrant, full medium pink roses.
