Anyone grow these? I'm not familiar with Jubilee Celebration? Or Rouge Royale. Got a Benjamin Britten for Mother's Day but would prefer a rose of a different color. Thanks for your help, cj
Rouge Royale is a dark red rose, the color of dried blood in my central valley CA yard. I found the color most unattractive, and the foliage as well. It does have a heavy scent and lasts long in a vase. The color might be better where you are. Growth habit was very like a gallica, lots of canes growing straight up.
JC I have not grown.
JC is a gorgeous, salmony pink, fragrant rose. A little small in Chicago.
I agree--JC is gorgeous. However, my bush has been a bit on the wimpish side since I first planted it 6-7 years ago--never really has "matured," as it were. Just not a vigorous rose at all.
Far better disease resistance on JC. Far better fragrance on RR.
