Olympiad is a great heat tolerant rose for the Desert Southwest. grows big flowers and leathery leaves. but holds off on growing flowers until there is cooler weather.

I had fond memories of Olympiad as I grew it as a kid. I planted one this past spring and had hoped for greatness because my other red hybrid tea I have, Chrysler Imperial, isn't my favorite. Well...I'm not as fond as Olympiad as I used to be. Is it a good red rose, honestly. But, it's smaller than I remember. There's no scent. It makes a good cut rose as they last a while in a vase, but there are better reds. Now, is it inherently worse than Chrysler Imperial that I have? Nope...but at least CI smells good!

My Olympiad has barely any fragrance or possibly none at all. Is it because of the heat in our tropical climate?

Also, what's the darkest red Olympiad can get? I had a bloom that had dark edges once. I dunno what caused it.

Olympiad has never been for fragrance. It's a cuttable garden red, that grows in a lot of places. The darker red rim usually happens when it is quite cool. Olympiad can become pink-ish when it is really hot.
