Comments It makes lots of little scarlet red blooms with a white eye. The stamens that decorate the eye, in turn have some red pigment, making each flower a simple but compelling piece of art. The plant makes plenty of blossoms, and it blooms with good continutity through the season. It tolerates poor soil. And it sets hips. It's not a rose for cutting; but it's a pretty good rose to place in the landscape for continuous color.
