Of all the roses that Edmunds’ Roses introduced, I am most proud of this wonderful red hybrid tea bred by Pierre Orard of France. I had the honor of discovering it at Orard’s nursery in Lyon, bringing it to the U.S. and propagating it under quarantine, then marrying the rose with Remember Me Rose Gardens and introducing it in the U.S. to honor the Firefighters who lost their lives on 9/11. The rose is a tall, upright hybrid tea with reddish green, disease resistant foliage. The flower is a deep red with lots of petals and a wonderful, strong fragrance. It will always be the first red hybrid tea I recommend for any garden.
