A large-flowered, carmine red rose of delicate substance and many petals, globular with a light old-rose fragrance. Not an extremely tall grower. Both Charles Walker in North Carolina and Phillip Robinson in California have collected this rose on opposite coasts many years ago, but only recently have we discovered that this is the Brownell rose.
