Crimson Shower: liane… Il n’est pas remontant, mais il fait illusion car sa floraison démarre tardivement et se prolonge en fin d’été… longs rameaux flexibles se laissent aisément palisser sur pergola ou sur colonne, mais c’est conduit en parasol ou en rosier pleureur qu’il excelle… fin feuillage luisant, remarquablement sain pour un rosier de ce type… Norman, UK, 1951

'Crimson Shower'. Trailer. Red Late summer. Perfume 2. Hips 1 [On a sliding scale of merit from 1 to 10]. Three stars recommendation. One of the last roses to come into bloom; and one of the last Wichuraiana Hybrids to be raised, as breeders turned their attention to more remontant climbers. It has the typical small double flowers of the class, in a deep glowing crimson, the best red colour of them all. No better red rose exists to grow on a pillar. Raised by Albert Norman and introduced by my firm in 1951. The parentage is always quoted as a seedling of 'Excelsa', but I have an idea there was more to it than that.
