It has dark green foliage throughout the season. The glossy oval compound leaves do not develop any appreciable fall colour. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

Bill Reid Rose is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.

This shrub will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. It is a good choice for attracting bees and butterflies to your yard.
