Introduced in Australia by Hazlewood Bros. Pty. Ltd. in 1938 as 'Lubra'.

Dark red.  Crimson.  Strong fragrance.  Small to medium, double (17-25 petals), high-centered bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  Long, pointed buds.

Upright.  Blue-green, leathery foliage.

'Lubra' had long stems and small blooms.
There are conflicting reports in the references on the parentage. Refer 1938, 1940 and 1942 references.
