When my husband and I visited a public garden we were delighted to stumble upon a great display of my husbands favorite red roses. It was a very hot day and the roses were all open, so I was unable to find a single bud to take a picture of. The buds are very lovely and prominent.
The attractive foilage is deep green and really shows off the brilliant red flower clusters.
This crimson rose bush is smaller than most grandifloras and also more disease resistant than most red roses.
The red rose flowers are double and large, about four inches across, with a petal count of 20-35.
The picture above shows my husband Tony, standing in a flowerbed with 'Crimson Bouquet' roses in full bloom.
My husband loves red roses and he is particularly fond of these ones.
It's a winner of year 2000 All American Rose Society (AARS) award for excellence.
White and blue companion flowers would look especially good with these red roses. Spikes of blue and white
foxgloves interplanted with the red rose bushes would look stunning.
Another great use for would be for an informal rose hedge. When planting a rose hedge, space the roses only 1.50 feet apart for a fuller effect.
The Crimson Bouquet rose blooms with profusion all season long until frost. It is also extremely cold hardy as well as thriving in hot climates. Zones 4-10, height 4-5 feet.
