Rosa 'Lasting Love' is dusky deep crimson red in bud, and once open is often suffused with hues of deep rich pink, although retaining the overall impression of a deep red rose with a sweet damask fragrance.
Winner of Most Fragrant Rose at NZ Rose of the Year Hamilton 2007.

I had a Lasting Love for about two years. i didn't like it for two reasons. First, it was advertised when I bought it as a dark red rose, and it wasn't; the photos that appear in this web page are accurate in portraying the color. Second, the growth habit was poor. The stems were too short for good cut flower use, the flowers did not as a whole have good form, and often the flowers "balled up" and did not open. I culled it after two years.

The healthiest rose I own....beautiful glossy green leaves that look almost plastic/unreal on a bushy plant with big beautiful blooms. Blooms on this plant are dark pinkish red, and have a strong true rose frangrance. Very hardy, with no sign of any disease...

I grow a number of roses in containers on a enclosed balcony. Some have had rust, some have had powdery mildew (a couple quite bad) and some have had a hard time with spider mites. But this rose plant still looks nearly flawless, with no sign of any disease, and barely affected by spider mites.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Desert View Highlands, California
