Dame de Coeur
Flower and bud in April. Color is an orangy red with black tips, and as you can see bud looks very black.
Picture of the bush. I've only had it for a year and half, but looks best when I prune it mercilessly and often.
One more picture to show that it opens very flat. The color and bloom size stayed the same regardless of the heat.
