unbelieveable colorReview by Jo

This rose is stunning. It has had several blooms in its first season. The color is such a deep red it has black shadows. Extremely luscious in zone 5. will undoubtedly give it five stars after another season. (Posted on 9/11/2018)

Planted this spring in my Zone 5 garden and it has been blooming most of the summer and when it blooms and the sun hits it the color is almost too intense to look at! Beautiful! (Posted on 9/6/2018)
Incredibly Beautiful and Fragrant! Review by Linda

We live in Zone 7. I was familiar with Queen Bee and other Griffith Buck roses when we lived in Iowa. I planted this rose late last fall here in Arkansas and it has not failed to delight as always. Not only is the color a deep incredible red with huge flowers, but it has an incredible fragrance as well. It is a true eye catcher! (Posted on 5/10/2018)

I gave this rose to my mom because she wanted a good winter hardy red rose. People walking down the street will ask my mom about where she had gotten this gorgeous rose from. And she has dozens of roses. There’s an iceberg rose next to it and it looks so complementary to it. It’s so much prettier than the pictures. Too bad they don’t have one with the rose fully opened. The stamins steal the show. (Posted on 4/5/2018)

Wow!Review by Ososanna

This rose is prolific and wonderfully scented. The color is intense and can be spotted yards away. It's growing in a pot and is thriving. It's winter in Zone 9 now; we've had a few freezing nights, and it's got buds ready to open. I wish I had space to plant more of them. (Posted on 1/10/2018)
