Red. Strong fragrance. Average diameter 1.5". Small, full (26-40 petals) bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season.
Height of 26" to 30" (65 to 75 cm).
USDA zone 6b and warmer. Can be used for beds and borders, container rose, cut flower or garden. 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.
There's a color photograph of this rose in the November 1998 issue of the American Rose Society's American Rose magazine (p. 22).
