Dark red Hybrid Tea.
Registration name: Lubra
Exhibition name: Lubra
Bred by Mrs. H.C. Fitzhardinge (1881-1956) (Australia, 1938).
Introduced in Australia by Hazlewood Bros. Pty. Ltd. in 1938 as 'Lubra'.
Hybrid Tea.  
Dark red.  Crimson.  Strong fragrance.  Small to medium, double (17-25 petals), high-centered bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  Long, pointed buds.  
Upright.  Blue-green, leathery foliage.  
Height of up to 42" (up to 105 cm).  
USDA zone 6b and warmer.  Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.  
'Lubra' had long stems and small blooms.
There are conflicting reports in the references on the parentage. Refer 1938, 1940 and 1942 references.
