Comments While one could not confuse this with an Old Rose from its strong color , the flowers are of a form that is strongly evocative of one. It takes some genius to work scarlet into a cottage garden planting, one might choose to grow this rose in large pots at the edge of a paved area. This rose is said to be a parent of many good reds [12].
