'Wilhelm'  Tall   Red  Remontant   P1     H3 
In my view a most uninteresting rose, but it does provide a red Hybrid Musk, without the scent associated with most of them; besides, so many people praise it, that I must be in the minority in my distaste for it. Raised by Wilhelm Kordes from 'Robin Hood' x 'J. C. Thornton', and a sister therefore of 'Eva'. It was introduced in 1934, and is known  in the  USA as 'Skyrocket'.
