Rosa spp. 6-8' x 3-4' Complex hybrid, bred by Bert Harp at the Morden Res and Dev Center, Manitoba, 1969.
A true red rose. Dark red single blossoms cover the tall shrub in late June. Caught our eye this early summer as one of the most sublime hardy reds we’ve ever seen. Warning: If you are afflicted by Stendhal syndrome, you may want to avoid this one. Before the bloom is fully open to reveal its shockingly golden stamens, it has the loveliest shape, reminiscent of a tea rose. Mildly fragrant. Not a repeat bloomer but a vigorous grower that could be used as a climber. Breeding records were closely guarded, so this one remains without a proper name. Z3. (9–18" bare-root plants)
