This is an heirloom rose. It was originally bred in France in 1865. The beauty of heirloom roses is that they haven't been weakened by modern hybridization techniques. They're hardy & generally less fussy than modern varieties. This is a deep red rose with a lovely fragrance. I chose it because my yard only gets about 4-5 hours of sunlight a day, and most roses require full sun. This rose thrives in my yard.

The petals of this rose are scorched by strong sunlight. It is a very useful subject for a shady spot. The petals have a velvety texture. Colour is rich dark red. The perfume is outstanding. It flowers throughout the summer.
