This is a lovely red rose. One of my favorites. Very long, strong stems are nice for cutting. So far it has proven to be hardy (in zone 9) and disease resistant. A rose that requires little care and provides blossoms all season, although not as prolific a bloomer as some of my other roses.

Fragrance: Slight

Flushes: Decent - 12 to 20

Repeat: Average to a little slow - 6 to 7 weeks

Vase life: Decent - almost 5 days - Deb doesn't remember using many the last couple years and thinks that is ballpark vase life for AD

My Dream x Charles Mallerin ) x seedling

I recieved this as a Mother's Day gift last year(2004), this is a slow growing rose bush, but this year I have a great flush of beautiful clear red blooms(8). Once this rose is established it is supposed to have about three flushes of roses a year(12 -20) , with about 6 week turn around between each.
Great rose, mulch in the winter, trim in early early spring feb - mar for SC
