Comments Ancestor to innumerable modern red roses, this is still a very good red that can stand on its own merits. The petals are dark red, with an almost velvet appearance. Fragrance is strong. Unlike many hybrid teas of today, it makes long, slender, whiplike canes that are well suited to training on structures such as fences or walls.
