Concerto (hybrid polyantha, Meilland 1953) - Concerto takes one of the first ranks among the beautiful small-bloomed roses, thanks to its extraordinary floriferousness, its beautiful glossy green foliage and vigourous habit. The blooms are glowing geranium-red. This rose looks incomparably beautiful.

....thus in the case of the Trade Mark Concerto, M. Meilland prudently indicates the common name (Mecert 531) which becomes the generic name of the variety.

Concerto (Meilland, 1953), (Hybrid Polyantha): Large semi-double glowing scarlet blooms freely produced through the growing season. It received a Gold Medal in England in 1953 and further awards on the Continent. The pedigree is 'Alain' x 'Orange Triumph', but as 'Alain' itself is a seedling from 'Orange Triumph', it shows the method of the hybridist in crossing child back to parent. Two other even more sensational varieties in 'Cocorico' and 'Moulin Rouge' have the same parentage.
