  • Description

    Light crimson buds gradually open to reveal very deep velvety crimson blooms, with lighter coloured outer petals. The flowers are large cups at first, becoming shallowly cupped with time. As the flowers age, we get glimpses of the stigma and stamens amongst the petals. There is a strong Old Rose scent which our fragrance expert, Robert Calkin, assesses as warm and fruity with blackberry, blueberry and damson notes". A healthy variety.
