From blogs of Vincent Gostiff growers, I have found that this rose is "Neon red color. Striking. No fragrance. Constant blooms. Grows about three feet high".

"'Vincent Godsiff' -- 4' x 4' dense shrub with almost single, glowing deep pink flowers - not good for cutting since the flowers shatter but it is always covered in bloom and is best pruned with hedge clippers, which makes it very easy to maintain. My second favorite in terms of performance in the garden. Makes a good anchor. Is a Bermuda"

A Bermuda "mystery rose."
Twiggy, but fast-growing compact bush rose. Mauvey-pink, semi-double blooms about 2 inches wide.
Update, August 2005: Vincent has bloomed non-stop all summer, while my hybrid teas have more or less shut down (typical during the hot and rainy season here). Little to no black spot, though I never spray it. Responds vigorously to any fertilizer.
Still don't care too much for the lipstick deep pink, but as care-free a rose as you'll find for a semi-tropical (9A) zone.
