Another of those stunning deep reds. Blooms are on rather short stems, but there are many of them, so I don't care. I grow it in my front yard along with many other roses in a mix of colors, but this red really pops out and attracts my attention.

Rita, located on the north shore of Nassau County Long Island, NY zone 6/7, where it is humid in the summer and roses always need to be sprayed with systemic fungicide to avoid blackspot.
