"Smooth Touch" Roses

For all you wimps out there, some breeders are developing roses with no or very few thorns.

"Smooth Touch" roses have no or hardly noticeable thorns. They are an ever-increasing range of roses including large flowered hybrid-tea, floribunda and climbing types. The flowers themselves are desirable and worthy of consideration - it's a bonus that the plants are practically thornless.
