Very nice shrub form for a hybrid tea. The blooms are deep, rich scarlet. The buds are so dark they appear almost black. The fragrance is moderate- stronger on warm, sunny days. The blooms are long-lasting on the plant and in a vase. Typical to type, it blooms heavily in the spring then sporadically through the summer and fall here in central NC. I've noticed a mild susceptibility to black spot but no other serious diseases or pests.

The Gypsy Rose grows well in warm weather and tolerates heat. It needs protection during spring freezes. Gypsy Rose is a red/orange color and often gets mixed up with Gypsy Carnival, but these are two different roses. Gypsy rose is red/orange with redish pick reverse.. where Gypsy Carnival is more a bright red with a yellow/white reverse. Although it is noted to have good disease resistance, I have had problems with mildew, which may be due to our cool damp springs.
