Seedling. Bred by Paul Barden, 2002.
As you can see, the blooms are a rich crimson and fully double in the OGR style. There is some fragrance, but I find it to be moderate compared to its parents. Each bloom is just about 4.5 inches across, which is quite good for a first bloom seedling. It will be planted out in my test beds for further evaluation. I like the look of this bloom a lot, don't you?
