Just as 'Constance Spry' was our first pink rose, 'Chianti' was our first red. Although both of these roses only flower once in a season, when they do flower, they produce a massive display of beautiful blooms worthy of comparison with the very best of the Old Roses. The blooms are large and cupped at first, opening to form Gallica-like rosettes of deep crimson, which turn with age to a beautiful purplish-maroon. There is a strong Old Rose fragrance.
