Perfection. I made over 100 pods with ROSES last year, and a ton again this year. Rich in color with that amazing watermark. Very fertile both ways and multiples well. I was able to get some ROSES FOR DALLAS X TETRFKXVICKI2 seeds this season for keepers. Reasons for continuing!

I completely agree with Steve's assessment on this one...perfection! This one is all about rich, vibrant color, amazing form and perfect plant habits. The watermark on this one is awesome and the blooms are so bright and clean that they show up for miles. I have also set LOTS of pods on this one the past couple of years.

I agree with both Steve and Cory about Roses for Dallas, it is the beautiful color with the outstanding watermark that drew me to add this one to my garden.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

would LOVE to have this one, but nurseries over here don't have it..

To 'compensate' I bought seeds from Steve with this cultivar as a parent Whistling

I didn't get this one until Fall 2015, but it settled in and made it through winter just fine. More than fine, it has thrived. Very impressive blooms with saturated color! Judy named this one for her Mother, so you know she thinks it's very special.

An impressive flower, but I'd like to see the scapes come closer to registered height.
