Super Hero is a very disease resistant rose. It is one of the first roses to bloom in my southern New England Garden and it blooms late into the season. It has saturated medium red flowers on stems long enough to cut for a small vase. It's a great rose for someone who wants an elegant bloom on a small, nicely shaped bush and for someone who has never grown roses before. It's part of the Easy Elegance series hybridized by Ping Lim.
