Crimson Bouquet makes high-centered flowers with buds that start deep, dark red, but open to a bright, pure red that is right on the cusp of scarlet and crimson. It is, arguably, the brightest and purest of the reds among roses. It is among the most disease resistant of red hybrid tea roses. Sadly, that means that it is virtually without scent. The red is the perfect shade to go with gray-foliaged plants. Actually, it works with most colors in the rose spectrum because it is neither purple nor orange in tint. Similarly, the plant is a good shape - not too tall and nicely shrubby.
BTW Parent "Bad Fussing" is a fragrant red hybrid tea rose named for an alpine spa resort in Germany.
