With small clusters if large-medium reddish pink flowers produced in flushes all season, ‘Smooth Prince’ is an outstanding thornless rose. The petals have a thick texture and are satiny inside and out.  The compact bushes have glossy, leathery leaves  that are dark green and have very good mildew and blackspot resistance.  Flowers last a long time on the bush and in the vase and the plants are suitable for containers or the garden.
