Comments Of McGredy's handpainted roses this one, possibly, screams the loudest for attention. Bright scarlet flowers have a white edge. They fade to strawberry cream as they age. Photos of the rose taken in cool climates depict a deeply saturated flower. Those from warmer ones tend to depict subtler shades. The plant is well branched and nicely rounded. In full bloom it can cover its entire exterior envelope with the bright, floppy folowers. It's not the kind of thing one would plant in a very formal setting, but it is a plant bound to get attention.
