If one treasures single roses with red stamens, Coral Meidiland might be a good bet. It's a tough wichuriana shrub that can cover its 3x3 ft frame with flowers.

Meidilands have a tradition of being tough, troublefree, and foliferous, and if this one is true to that tradition - and its wichuriana background suggests it might be - then it could be completely trouble-free.

I look forward to seeing more of this rose, it's a rare and much coveted garden color. Interesting though it is, the specimen in the photo had only several of these two inch blossoms.
