Explodes with rich, deep color.

Welcome to the latest and best Simplicity® of all! Double Red is named for its rich color and high bud count, but its best merit may just be the superior resistance to mildew and rust that keeps the dark green, glossy foliage looking great even in humid and rainy climates. A truly low-maintenance rose that can take more moisture than most others, Double Red belongs front and center in your landscape!

Saturated with rich crimson tones, these exquisitely formed double blooms arise in big floribunda clusters on vigorous shrubs determined to flower all summer long. You get both length and strength with Double Red -- more flowers than you expect, and opening over a longer period, so you have a good bit of color all summer long. Such a treat for those hot places alongside the driveway, in the foundation, around the perimeter of the property, and anywhere else in the sun!

The latest in the renowned Simplicity® series of hedge roses, Double Red is exceptionally resistant to mildew and rust, withstanding even hot, humid summers effortlessly. This makes it a great choice for the deep South and the pacific northwest, where many roses struggle with moisture levels in the air. Double Red won't turn a petal when the going gets wet!

Give this rose fertile, well-drained soil with plenty of water, and pamper it the first year to get it established, as you would any new shrub. It will begin flowering the very first year, and will continue for countless seasons after! Zones 6-9.

Double Red Simplicity

I bought several of these in either the late 70's or early 80's. They are still doing beautifully and get more vigorous over time. The color is eye-catching.
Simply stunning!
English and bush roses are my favorites. from ID wrote (December 18, 2013):
I had these roses years ago and will have them again at a new home I'm building. People would stop to tell me how amazing they were. The red ones bloom from the bottom to the top and then start all over again continuing all summer. My very favorite rose.
It's back!

Glad they finally got Red Simplicity back!

What to Expect
Container roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren’t dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into containers and make an attractive gift.

Container roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like.

Container-Grown Rose Instructions
  • When your roses arrive, water them thoroughly.
  • Choose a well-drained location that recieves at least 4 to 6 hours of direct sun each day. Dig a hole at least twice the size of the rootball. Mix the native soil with compost or other organic material and add superphosphates.
  • Gently loosen the rootball, place it into the hole so that the bud union sits 1 to 2 inches below soil level, and fill the hole with the remaining soil.
  • Water thoroughly, then mulch heavily around the base for winter protection. Your roses will arrive lightly pruned, so it is not imperative that you do any additional pruning before winter.
