I don't grow many red roses in my garden. I've tried the classic hybrid tea red roses like Mr. Lincoln and Chrysler Imperial, and although their scent is heavenly, they are too high maintenance for my taste. But there is one red rose that I would not be without and that is L.D. Braithwaite.
I grow this rose in both my gardens and I love it. It has the classic David Austin form, a slight scent and is disease resistant in my area. The bushes that I grow give the garden bed a punch of soft red in such a graceful form that I look forward to their flowers every year.
