I'm currently on holiday in Cairns and have seen one or two roses struggling along in the tropical heat, but this one was growing strong. Can anyone id it?

My Red Dragon is low and spreading. I consider the blooms a deeper red than the "cherry red" blooms of Louis Phillipe.

I have two and they are both still very young. They definitely bloom a deeper red than those appear on my screen, and the foliage is also smaller and darker green. Perhaps someone will have other suggestions.

I love red Chinas, but I think they're the hardest to ID.

Whatever it is its a beautiful rose.

I have WPIRDM and love it, but like Jeri said, it's so hard to identify one red china from another. I just can't tell for sure.
