    I planted this rose in the fall, and it bloomed into December! Then it started blooming again, like crazy, in mid-April.

    Good color, very floriferous.

    Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
    " ‘Valentine’s’ long pointed buds open to velvety, semi-double flowers of rich scarlet that can be 3 or 4 inches across on a mature plant. The nearly thornless bush is slightly open. The foliage is very full and rich and is rarely affected by heat, humidity, insects, or disease. This is a rose grown for show and will attract considerable attention. ‘Valentine’ is one of our most popular red roses."
