New Roses 1932. E. J. Ludding HT. (G. A. van Rossem, 1931) F. 3. A very strong growing, branching variety with good foliage, carrying carmine lake flowers of thirty petals or more. The blooms are rather on the flat side which rather spoils their shape but the colour is good and it will probably find many admirers for its garden value.
