This rose has the brightest crimson colouring of all the English Roses; standing out when viewed from across the garden. It is related to Mary Rose and has many of that rose’s good garden qualities. The blooms open wide and are slightly cupped. They are produced freely and flower with remarkable continuity. It forms a medium-sized, bushy shrub which looks particularly beautiful when grown in a mixed border. There is little scent until the flower ages, when it develops a charming Old Rose fragrance.
