Rodhatte. (Though not strictly a Polyantha) is a delightful variety, colour rosy crimson, which does not fade; the blooms are continuously produced in large clusters. A very free grower, and practically evergreen.

Development of the Floribunda
Rose-breeder and Grower Kvistgaard, Denmark

In my opinion, the true forerunner of the floribundas is "Little Red Riding Hood" —1911 (Rodhaette). It was raised by my late uncle "Dines" who worked a couple of years in his young days for Peter Lambert in Germany and got a lot of inspirations from this great rose hybridizer. This variety is still in commerce in Scandinavia — believe it or not.
