Flower Type Double/Full Bloom
Size Medium Shrub
Fragrance Strong Old Roses
Special Characteristics Superb, richly coloured flowers on a very disease resistant, rounded shrub.
Excellent repeat flowering.
Without doubt, the best crimson English Rose to date. It is a truly superb variety with exquisite blooms of the richest velvety crimson, gradually changing to an equally rich purple. Deeply cupped at first, the flower soon opens out to a shallow quartered cup. The growth is neat and upright; each stem bearing a number of flowers.
This rose has the strong, warm Old Rose fragrance that we expect, but do not always find, in deep red roses. Excellent disease resistance.
