Selecting a rose for boys to identify with it needs to have a strong colour, be rugged and easy to grow. A crossing of two of Ludwig’s personal favourites, the long-stemmed cut rose, ‘Garden Pavilion’ and ‘Playboy’ a tough floribunda.
It is tall growing, pretty thorny, but always producing lovely scented blooms of a glowing orange vermilion that takes on a brown hue when the flowers have opened.
This rose was named for the centenary celebrations of the Cordwalles Boys’School in Pietermaritzburg.
