Comments Smouldering hot red buds have an almost velvety texture. The blossoms can blue a bit as they open. The buds are high-centered and the petals are slightly reflexed. This means it makes a pretty good show rose. It also does pretty well in the garden; one gardener reports that it reached 3ft x 3ft in her garden in three months. I have climbing roses that have not reached three feet in as many years.
