After 2 years it is 2 feet tall and 2.5 feet wide. Flushes are very quick succession. Prone to mildew in coastal California. Blooms fry in hot dry heat. No scent. Color is a very vibrant red with slight blue undertones. Fade to hot pink slightly when the weather is really hot. When we have heat humidity is very low. Good landscape rose. I also cut sprigs to put in a little bud vase by the kitchen sink and they last at least 5 days.

I finally called someone to ask about a rose that is blooming non-stop that I pass on my way to work everyday. I also stopped to sniff it and it had a pretty strong scent.

I was told it was a Valentine. Can that be right? I didn't think Valentine had a scent.

Here we are, a couple of decades after your question: I have a 'Valentine', and you are right: It is devoid of scent.

Does anyone know how shade tolerant this rose is? Thanks!

I needed a low-growing, strong-blooming, disease-resistant, heat tolerant thornless red rose for the area surrounding my porch.  I ended up planting 3 Valentines, and have been very pleased with them the first season in the ground.  They are real bloom-machines.  The blooms are rich and vibrant and hold in the heat, coming in near-continuous waves.  They got a small amount of blackspot after a bout of  very long hot and humid weather over the summer, but nothing debilitating.  This is definitely one of the standout roses in my garden.  Claire, St Louis, Zone 5/6
