Comments Blossoms are an exquisite shade of scarlet and are set off by handsome yellow stamens. It is a tough reasonably trouble-free rose.

BTW: There exist a handful of moyesii hybrids with long canes,producing reddish tinted single flowers and elongated hips including Eddie's Crimson, Eos, and several others. Geranium happens to produce the brightest, purest red flowers.
