Buck Rose - Mavourneen

Mavourneen (1984)

Red blend shrub. The medium-large, ovoid-pointed buds are whitetinted currant red (RHSCC 46A) and open to double (20-25 petals), open, 4.4-5 inch bicolored blooms of currant-red on the face and white on the petal reverse. The blooms are borne in clusters of 1- 10 and have a light, sweet scent. The abundant, large, leathery, medium glossy foliage is dark green and is tolerant of normal foliar disease. The thorns are tan and awl-like. The erect plant is bushy and blooms from June until killing frost. The plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
