This is a “superb” rose, a mutation of the Tuscany variety, with large and lush semi-double dark red flowers with a crown of golden stamens in the centre.

The plant has a good tolerance of poor soils and adapts well to cultivation in pots, hedges or in tree-lined parks. It also copes well with partial shade.

It flowers once in summer and its hips are ornamental.
