Red Masterpiece Everything a classic red Hybrid Tea rose should be, and then some – from the exquisitely formed dark-red oval pointed buds that open to dark, rich red flowers, to the vigorous attractive plants and luxurious old rose fragrance. These high-centered 5-inch blooms are borne singly on long cutting stems and have excellent form from start to finished. This one has ‘Chrysler Imperial’ on both sides of its lineage, and was hybridized by William Warriner. It is Jackson & Perkins 1974 Rose of the Year.
