Buck Rose - Habanera

Habanera (1976)

Light red shrub-floribunda. The medium-sized, ovoid-pointed buds of dark cardinal red (RHSCC 532A) open to double 30-35 petals), shallow-cupped, 4-4.5 inch blooms of dark cardinal red (RHSCC 53A) aging through rose-red (RHSCC 58B) to rose bengal (RHSCC 61D). The blooms are borne singly and in clusters of 5-15 and have a light fragrance. Abundant, leathery, medium green (RHSCC 137A) foliage has good tolerance to Blackspot and Powdery Mildew. The thorns are red-brown and awl-like. The erect plant is bushy and bloom from early June until killing frost. The plants are winter-hardy in Iowa to 6-8" without protection.
