Comments Few roses are capable of creating such a loud color statement as Disco Dancer. It produces prodigous numbers of brightly colored roses which it holds against very dark, glossy foliage. Blossoms range in color from a searing, saturated vermilion (DK images calls it a vivid orange-scarlet) to a slightly less hot dark coral or soft scarlet. It is not a rose of nuance or subtlty. If, however there is a spot in the garden that needs a kick of bright color, this might be a good choice. One rating at HMF suggests it might have good disease resistance.
