Most catalogues would describe the flowers on this rose as 'Turkey red' although the colour does fade a little with age. The large flowers and the fantastic scent have enabled this variety to stay popular for many years. It is a vigorous plant with dark green healthy foliage and repeats well, it comes into flower earlier in the season than most other roses so has a good long flowering period. Named after a well known Scottish rose grower who started breeding late in life, this was his first big success and is now grown all over the world. An excellent garden rose.
