The American introducers informed their customers that ‘ten distinctly colored flowers are frequently shown on the bush at one time, varying from cochineal red in the bud to glowing coppery red tinged with orange when the flower opens’.The spicy scented blooms are double, carried on long, spring stems either singly or in clusters of up to 24 and open wide to display their brilliance. They continue flowering through summer and autumn. The vigorous bush grows upright to above average height for a Polyantha. It has rich green foliage that is reddish when young. This is one of the most unusual roses I grow. No disease whatsoever and a really fun cultivar. A great conversation piece!
