Comments Dark coral or scarlet blossoms have a complementary white eye and tan stamens which, set against bright green foliage, makes for a cheery effect. The plant also produces a fine display of orange hips in autumn. This is an unusual shrub rose: it is very rare to find this color on a large shrub. Despite its many awards, the rose is only just in commerce. Molly is destined always to be someone else's.
