Comments The plant's natural vigor and the fact that the roses have few petals that allows this cultivar to make five inch blossoms with a spicy fragrance almost continuously through the season. They arrive in a warm shade of scarlet that can light up the garden, but they do fade quickly as they open. The plant is a little open and scraggly, but it has good disease resistance.
