Wild Cherry

(SOMredsky)

 

about

This rose is very showy and very floriferous.

It forms a large bush with dark glossy foliage. The plant is slightly spreading and smothers itself with very showy cherry red and white blooms. The blooms pack so tight, they often cover the foliage almost completely. This variety is very healthy.
