Bred by Tom Carruth (United States, before 2000).
Introduced in United States by Weeks Wholesale Rose Grower, Inc. in 2004 as 'Ruby Ruby'.
Cherry-red to ruby-red.  Mild, tea fragrance.  26 to 40 petals.  Average diameter 1.75".  Small to medium, full (26-40 petals), in small clusters, cupped-to-flat bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  Pointed, ovoid buds.  
Medium, bushy, spreading.  Small, semi-glossy, dark green, leathery foliage.  3 to 5 leaflets.  
Height of 2' to 30" (60 to 75 cm).  Width of 39" to 47" (100 to 120 cm).
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).  Can be used for container rose, cut flower, garden or landscape.  Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom.  Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.  
Breeder's notes:
Shapely buds, nice clusters, stable color.
