A bit scruffy at times. Would really prefer thicker and more consistent foliage cover.

However, it seems generally healthy and the flowers, when it has them, are worth the wait.

New Bedding Rose.
Gruss An Teplitz.

This beautiful Rose was illustrated in colors on the cover of our 1902 Catalogue, and during last spring we distributed many thousands of plants and never have we received so many flattering reports from pleased customers as we did from this variety.

This, the reddest of all red Roses, is to the amateur who has no greenhouse and depends on his garden for flowers one of the most important varieties yet introduced. It is a Rose for everybody, succeeding under the most ordinary conditions, and is destined to take rank with such old-time favorites as Hermosa, Malmaison, Soupert, etc. In color it is of the richest scarlet imaginable, shading to a velvety crimson as the flowers mature;
in size it is larger than Hermosa, very fragrant, a free, strong grower, quite hardy, and the most profuse bloomer known to us, the mass of color produced being truly phenomenal; the foliage is extremely beautiful, all the younger growth being of a bronzy plum color.

Strong 2-year old plants, 30 cents each; #3.50 per dozen.

from Dreer's Quarterly Wholesale Price List, January - March, 1903, p.39

Gruss an Teplitz is very strongly scented in my alkaline clay ... the scent is consistently good regardless of the weather, be it 90 degrees or cooler. The prickles are small and harmless. Came down with mildew initially as a young band in acidic potting soil. I planted in my alkaline clay, and mildew is gone. Very healthy for the past 3 years.
