Considered by Gregg Lowery to be one of the best of the small-statured "black" Hybrid Teas, 'Nigrette' indeed has some fine qualities. Rich fragrance, exquisite velvety-black-red coloring and compact growth habit. It makes a perfect container rose, in fact, because of its size. This is a must for any collector of the "black" red Hybrid Teas.
