Rook™

Rook is described by Paul as having "spectacular color of an intense deep crimson, approaching black-crimson. Rook is one of the darkest Gallicas I have ever seen." Blooms come in clusters of three to five. Bloom form is a flat rosette that is sometimes quartered, sometimes with a button eye. Petal count is a minimum of 50, maximum of 80. There is a moderate spicy scent. The rounded compact bush has dark green, matte foliage, will sucker modestly, and looks lovely planted in among lighter flowered Gallicas, such as Camaieux. Rook is hardy to at least Zone 5a and possibly much colder. Winter protection is not required. Excellent addition to an OGR bed where a smaller specimen is needed. Photo copyright Paul Barden 2008.

Introduced in 2009.
