This rose was one of the first roses to be involved in the promotional marketing of a consumer product, the Chrysler Imperial car. Lovely, long pointed buds open to globular flowers of dark velvety red. The 4-5” blooms contain a strong citrus scent . A must in any flower arrangements. The bush is nicely shaped with semi-glossy foliage. Over 50 years old yet still a great rose. Winner of the American Rose Societies James Alexander Gamble Rose Fragrance Award. Only a handful of roses has won this award. All American Winner 1953 and Gold Medal Portland.
