I bought this plant 5 years ago in local nursery just because it looked very healthy and was on sale, and I am so happy I did it. This is a low-maintenance, disease and deer resistant rose shrub with dark green foliage, which always look healthy, and enormous amount of beautiful dark red flowers. Start blossoming in the middle of May here in zone 5b (MI) and repeat blooming in late summer. Very strong and hardy.

Grows well here on the coast of Maine. Not much scent, but lovely blooms, and makes a nice landscaping shrub.
