Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Cadenza is an excellent candidate for cutting and drying, as it tends to maintain its red coloration and doesn't blacken with age. Clusters of ruffled red petals which fade slightly to burgundy are supported on strong stems. The bush is upright and angular with large glossy leaves and gives no indication of insect or disease problems."
