Comments Among the darkest of the true red roses that are actually pleasing to look at, the blossoms of Guinee are large for a climber. Technically, it is just a very leggy hybrid tea rose, and it flowers with the corresponding parsimony; but the flowers are extremely interesting and quite fragrant, so it is worthy of a small space in a big garden.
