Medium red shrub. The ovoid-pointed ruby red (RHSCC 61B) open to double (25-35 petals), shallow-cupped, 4-4.5 inch blooms that lighten to dark rose bengal (RHSCC 61C) as they age. The blooms are borne in clusters of 1-20 and have a light sweet fragrance. The abundant, medium-large, leathery foliage is dark olive green. The thorns are tan and awl-like. The erect, bushy plant is free-branching and blooms freely from June until killing frost. The plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
