'Chivalry'. McGredy 1977. ('Peer Gynt' x 'Brasilia'). Red with yellow reverse. 13 reports, 3 years, 5'. N.R.S. rating 7.0. The main complaint about this rose is that the stems are mostly too thick and are heavily thorned. All praise its health and vigor. Hutt even suggests it could be used as a small climber. Hastings and Wanganui report of fading under hot sun, while Gisborne praises its weather resistance qualities. it can stand rain very well. Hutt and Central Hawkes Bay say the bloom develop and last well when cut. Golden Bay report that it often blooms in clusters. Evidently a good healthy garden rose.

Don Sheppard. Review of Newer Roses 1982-83 Season.
'Chivalry'. (McGredy '77) - 'Peer Gynt' x 'Brasilia'. Red and yellow blend. 11 reports, 3 years, 3ft for 1st year bushes and 5ft for established bushes. N.R.S. rating 7.2. Reports from the Southland through to Te Awamutu, speak of a strong healthy growing bush, tho the stems are often coarse and are heavily covered with thorns. The reports of established bushes like the bright colour and texture of the blooms, but say the bush needs planting at back of bed or well staked. All say it to be healthy. Only the Hutt mentions perfume and that blooms are good for picking. Te Awamutu reports that the repeat is not so good.
