Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Papa Hmeray is a small but vigorous bush set thickly with clusters of small flowers. The individual blossoms are single and cherry red with distinct white centers. Flowering is continuous and showy on this cheerful little bush. Its few thorns and a free blooming nature make this a nice rose to work with, whether as a bedding plant or in a container."
