I grow more than 40 roses and this one is my absolute favorite. It's a wonderful black/red rose. The buds are black and it turns black as it ages. It's incredibly fragrant, blooms like mad and grows like a weed even though I have it in a large pot. The flowers are much larger and fuller in the winter. Hot humid summers with hot humid night temperatures result in slightly smaller flowers with fewer petals but it's still beautiful. It's excellent as a cut flower and very disease resistant.
