‘Cuba’. HT (Pernet-Ducher, 1927). Vivid orange scarlet buds, opening to immense, cup-like flowers or iridescent copper-red and brilliant orange vermilion. Extremely free flowering and a vigorous erect grower.
At first glance, another ‘Padre’, but while it is almost exactly the same color, the flowers are much larger, but have fewer petals. The growth is also similar but possibly more bushy, and the neck seems a little stronger. One of the showiest Roses grown, and makes a marvellous display. 16 petals.

Mr. J. W. Firth, Thornbury, Victoria. ‘Cuba’ – Anybody liking semi-single roses will find this capable of making a great splash of colour in the garden. The colour is hard to describe – orange-scarlet is near it – and it stands the bright sun well. Planted June, 1928 and has produced three crops of blooms to now – April. Height 3 ft.

‘Cuba’ (Pern.) (Pernet-Ducher, 1926) F.2. The long buds are almost scarlet, very heavily flushed orange and claret, with deep orange scarlet or Lincoln red on the back of the petals, and the inside of the petal is a rich velvety scarlet crimson with carmine towards the tips. Long buds carried on upright stems. The open flowers are large, semi-double and globular. The petals are large and strong. Very sweet scented. Handsome bronze green foliage. Very vigorous, quite hardy, erect habit. Few thorns. Very free flowering. A very striking colour and worth a trial.

Recent Introductions and Rare Varieties
Cuba. Hybrid Tea. (Pernet-Ducher, 1927.) Vivid orange-scarlet buds opening to immense cup-like flowers of iridescent copper-red and brilliant orange-vermilion. Extremely free flowering and a vigorous, erect grower.
At first glance another Padre, but while it is almost exactly the same color, the flowers are larger, as a rule, but have fewer petals. The growth is also similar but possibly more vigorous, and the neck seems a little stronger.
Book  (1928)  
 
p128-11 Dr. Beal. ‘Cuba’ of striking and distinct color.

p130-5 Wilhelm J. H. Kordes. ….I like flowers with more substance. The same I must say of ‘Cuba’, a grand but fleeting color with some half-dozen petals; it is not any better than ‘Padre’.

p133-7 Mr. Buisman: ‘Cuba’ from the well-known raiser, Pernet-Ducher, is orange-scarlet, and I doubt if it will last long.

p152-3 Proof of the Pudding. ‘Cuba’ HT (pernet-Ducher, 1926) A.R.A. 1927. Great favorite; perhaps better than ‘Padre’ Foliage of each could be better, but ‘Cuba’s better of the two. – H.R.F., Mass.
Almost a facsimile of ‘Padre’, one of the best of that type, but ‘Cuba’ has a beautiful cluster of yellow stamens in the center – C.G.A., N.Y.
An improved ‘Padre’, better in habit and more modest = J.H.N., Pa.
Excellent in spring, not so good later – W.M.P., Md.
All right but so near ‘Padre’ that there is no need for the two varieties – M.E.W., Ohio.
A good single – G.H.G., Wash.
More intense color than ‘Padre’ and much the same shape; not as vigorous. Blooms not always good; stems weak. ‘Padre’ is superior. G.F.M., Wash.
Very satisfactory. Long season of bloom. Stood the hot days unusually well. Better than ‘Padre’ for bedding, which is praise enough. – Mrs. M. G. Adams, Los Altos., Calif.
Vigorous, fine plant. Immense cup-like flowers, borne singly on long canes. Fine for this climate. R.I. Calif.
Distinct and attractive color; loose, semi-double form. One of the best of its type. G.C.T., Calif.
Good grower and bloomer, similar to ‘Padre’, with more intense color, especially in the outside petals. Stems not as long. I like it. F.L.G., Calif.
A very fine rose at Breeze Hill, but we do not need both ‘Cuba’ and ‘Padre’. For choice, would take ‘Cuba’.

piii-2 The Conard-Pyle Co., West Grove, Pa. [advertisement] ‘Cuba’ HT. The large flowers are almost single, yet they possess a charm and brilliancy in color which is an entirely new tone in Roses, a glorious bright vermilion-scarlet over an orange ground. This color combination is so intense that in full sunlight it glistens with an iridescent sparkle. The richly colored blooms are produced from spring to late fall. $1.50 each.

New Roses 1928. Cuba (Pernetiana. Pernet Ducher, 1926) The long buds are almost scarlet, but the open flowers are a very uncommon shade of orange scarlet or Lincoln red on the back of the petals, and the inside of the petal is a rich velvety scarlet crimson with carmine towards the tips. The general colour effect is magnificent.....
Very variable, colour. As the bloom only carries about 10 petals, it will not class as a long-lasting flower.​
