Comments A fragrant red hybrid tea rose rose with great disease-resistance is a rare thing to be cherished. This, evidently is one such rose. One expecting fire-engine red might be disappointed by the crimson hue. Those dreaming of high-centered tea form are likely to be similarly disappointed. Still, it's a good choice where fragrance and cold hardiness rate before form and color.
