This is a great red rose. It has great classic HT form from bud to full-blown in a nice shade of red, which does blue a little when full-blown. It grows very tall, but this allows for long cutting stems. Should be a good show rose. I believe it was hybridized by an amateur and that one parent is 'Touch of Class,' from which it inherited nice form. A keeper...I have 3.
