Comments This exact shade of scarlet is rare among hybrid tea roses. This rose may be a pretty good choice where a low-maintenance red rose is required. The big question is, why the low rating? One explanation might be that the flowers are not very large for a hybrid tea rose, nor are the petals reflexed. It's not a great looker set alone in a vase. But it is nicely branched and well covered with foliage. So it makes a nice bright spot in the garden.
