'Rodhatte'. ('Red Riding Hood') was introduced by Dines Poulsen in 1911. It is a cross of the Polyantha 'Mme. Norbert Levavasseur' and 'Richmond'. This rose founded the success of Poulsen's roses in Denmark. This remarkable Floribunda rose was so successful that during the 1920s, it was responsible for over 25% of all roses sold annually in Sweden. No other rose has ever been this popular. This rose founded the cornerstone of the Poulsen nursery and its success contributed to the introduction by Poulsen of many roses that proved both popular and hardy in the Nordic climate. It has a fine, deep red colouring. It forms a small bush shape of 70 x 50cm. It has little fragrance. It is an excellent bedding flower.

Introduced in 1912, it had small, semi-double, cherry-coloured flowers in large clusters. Unfortunately, it seems to have been lost in the turmoil of the First World War and little more has been heard about it since.

Poulsen introduced what is considered the first floribunda, 'Rödhätte', in 1912, and his sone Dines and Svend continued his work with this type of rose... 'Rödhätte', whose name means 'Red Riding Hood', is a cross between a red polyantha and a red hybrid tea; it was originally sold as a polyantha or a hybrid polyantha. It is no longer available commercially.

Lewis Levy. The Newer Dwarf Polyanthas. ….At this point it would not seem out of place to trace the beginnings from which the first raisers of the Hybrid Polys started and Mr. S. Poulsen of the firm of D. T. Poulsen, has been so very kind as to render me the greatest assistance in this matter. He informs me that his firm’s original aim was to raise a class of Rose which would be impervious to the severe weather and rain experienced in Denmark and the Scandinavian countries, having all the free-flowering qualities and hardiness of the Poly. Poms, and these conditions were found fulfilled by the introduction of ‘Gruss an Aachen’ in 1908 and ‘Rodhatte in 1911….
