    Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
    " ‘Peace’ crossed with ‘Independence’ produced this cherry red rose with the old-fashioned name. We are not sure why it dropped out of commerce, as it is healthy and free-blooming with large, double, very fragrant flowers that last well on the bush and in vases. The color is strong but mixes quite well in the landscape with older varieties of roses. This rose is also known as "The Black Rose," as the cherry red coloration darkens to a crimson as it ages."
