This extraordinary double rose has intense deep blood-red colourings with beautifully fluted, outward curved petals which age to deeper rouge, almost black. These petals are very tough with a velvety feel. As the blooms finish their show they will self-clean and completely drop off the plant. This will leave a neat clean plant to put its energy into re-flowering again.
Repeat flowering and grows as a neat rounded shrub to about 1.2 metres. Its blooms are carried in clusters evenly over the shrub en-masse like all great floribunda.
This rose will enjoy Australia’s hot climate!
NAMED AFTER ONE OF FRANCE’S MOST FAMOUS SINGERS OF THE 20TH CENTURY.
