Comments At eight inches across, its flowers are among the largest to be cultivated in rosedom. They are a pure, bright, fire-engine red, but they are also quite loose and floppy by traditional hybrid tea standards. And they blow pretty quickly in warmish weather. This is not an exhibition rose. A young plant will dole these out one at a time through most of the summer as it produces purplish foliage. Both look good together. The plant is a steady grower and if it inherited the best health traits of the three most famous of its named ancestors (Olympiad, Ingrid Bergman & All That Jazz), it should be blessed with pretty good health.
