Comments The form of Veteran's Honor is among the more perfect to be found among truly red hybrid tea roses. It's color, though, is a little paler, a little closer to coral than most. It is said to grow well in some reasonably warm and humid places like Virginia and Illinois. In Florida it is said to be a martyr to blackspot and in Pennsylvania summer weather might prove too cool for it to grow vigorously and bloom generously.
