Comments Deep coral flowers touch on red, crimson and vermilion. When they are found together in the rose, it has a rare depth of color. Sometimes, though, it just renders brick red. In bud it can approach the perfect high-centered form of its parent, Charlotte Armstrong. The plant is vigorous and well branched, and the flowers have good fragrance.
