Photo of Rose Eutin

Eutin makes huge clusters of small crimson roses. And it survives neglect. In terms of toughness it measures up with the rest of Wilhelm Kordes introductions. People with the artistic sensitivity and refined tastes of Graham Stewart Thomas will probably find that this rose lacks the 'je ne c'est quoi' he finds missing in other introductions by that breeder.

In short, if you want a trouble-free, muscular plant to manufacture color, this is a good choice. If you wish to bask in fragrance or appreciate individual blossoms look elsewhere.
