    Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
    "This crimson colored rose is a prolific spring bloomer. Flowers are fragrant and emerge from moss covered buds. The foliage is outstanding - darker and more dense than most of our European collection. Heat tolerance should be of no concern, as it tolerates our Texas summer heat nicely."
