Fully double deep crimson flowers with an attractive spicy fragrance from July to September and masses of dark green leaves.

One of the best dark-red roses, the handsome high-centred blooms on long stems make excellent cut-flowers.

  • Garden care: Before planting shorten thick roots to 25cm (10in) and reduce top-growth to an outward-facing bud 8-15cm (3-6in) above ground-level. Plant during a frost-free spell incorporating well-rotted organic matter and a balanced fertiliser into the planting hole. Ensure that the 'bud union' (the bulge at the base of the shoots) is 2.5cm (1in) below the soil.
