The large flowers are semi-double with 21 petals and do not last long, either on the bush or as a cut flower. The sweetly scented blooms are a velvety crimson and the petals have a soft velvety texture. It is a well-foliated medium climber that flushes out in prolific bloom in early spring with lighter blooming periodically after that.In warmer climates there may also be winter blooms. She was named for a member of the breeder’s family. She is a mannerly climber and I think very beautiful.
