(Ausbrother) Lady Emma Hamilton
Dark red buds with dashes of orange, open to chalice-shaped blooms of rich tangerine orange, with yellow-orange on the outside of the petals. They are held against very dark, bronzy green, polished leaves that slowly become dark green with age. The flowers have a strong, delicious, fruity fragrance with hints of pear, grape and citrus fruits. The growth is fairly upright but quite broad and bushy. David Austin, 2005. [...]
Named after the beautiful mistress of Lord Nelson to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar.
