Europeana

Foliferous
Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
Photo of Rose Europeana What if you had a little factory the size of a computer monitor that cranked out pure red flowers in great clusters through the season. What if that little factory was composed entirely of leaves and stems above ground and roots below, and it lived on water and sunshine? You'd have the equivalent of Europeana.

ARS members rate it a stellar 8.7. It has accumulated a host of international awards. It has been a bestseller for decades. Though Europeana is a cliche among rosarians, it still remains unknown to almost everyone else - so it will look novel to your neighbors and friends. What more can be said? This is the red.
