Hybrid Tea.  
Red.  Moderate fragrance.  26 to 40 petals.  Average diameter 4.5".  Large, full (26-40 petals), borne mostly solitary, exhibition bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Medium, upright.  Medium, semi-glossy, medium green foliage.  
Height of up to 39" (up to 100 cm).  
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).  Can be used for beds and borders, container rose, cut flower, exhibition or garden.  Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom.  Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.
