Our Rose of the Year winner for 2000 is one of our most popular red roses in recent memory! This glorious thick-petaled rose honors patriotism and courage, with 10% of net sales donated to veterans'' healthcare. Set on a statuesque plant, its deep red buds spiral into magnificent high-centered blossoms in brilliant red. As the raspberry-scented flowers mature, their bright color is softened by overtones of pastel pink. These long-stemmed gems last for up to two weeks in the vase.
