I agree with the other posters - gorgeous, slow-opening blooms. I have to admit I've never actually stopped to smell it; one more thing to do in the garden!

The best part for me, however, is that as far as I can tell, my Red Masterpiece hasn't noticed that our daytime temperatures are ranging from the 90s on upwards. Last summer, it was in dappled sunlight all day and kept blooming from when I bought it through to November. This summer, it has a spot in the ground in the sunniest part of my yard. We hit 100+ a week and a half ago, and Red Masterpiece had three flowers open and two more on the way. Today, it has one open still and three more HUGE buds getting ready to open.

This rose is well named. I agree that this is a wonderful rose--one of my favorites. The well-formed blooms and plant are very large. The perfume is wonderful, heavy. I understand that it has a lot of 'Mirandy' rose in it's breeding.
It's most obvious trait is 'elegance' in color, plant, bud, and opening flower (which keeps well-formed until the petals drop many days later) . The long stems are strong and fairly smooth, the plant vase-shaped.. It does get some blackspot, but it has more resistance than most and has to be sprayed less often.

This rose is incredible! Fragrance, repeat ... it has it all! My bush is two years old and stands about 8 feet high! Yes, I said "8 feet".. no typo!
