Found Rose, Hybrid Tea.  
Crimson or red.  A very prickly plant, so far producing many short-stemmed dark red blooms. So far a decorative rather than a cutting rose because of the short stems. Repeats very quickly and responds well to light trimming..  Strong, damask fragrance.  up to 30 petals.  
7 leaflets.  
Patent status unknown (to HelpMeFind).
Originally found by Barbara Dundas in Ethel Street, Guildford, Western Australia, prior to 2010.
Propagated by Peter Ellis.

“Red Ethel” has a large disc and the pistil rises high above the stamens with age and the stigmas turn bright pink or red.
