Comments As does its half-sister Iceberg, Eva produces flowers continuously, all summer long. The dark crimson petals fade toward cerise at the center, giving a very distinct appearance to the panicles that bear 75 or more flowers each. The show stops if the flowers are not removed, but the unique hips in pink appear. Eva is a tough plant whose vigor and desease resistance derive from its multiflora heritage. This is certainly not a rose for a small garden. But it is very well suited to border a woodland.
