L.D. Braithwaite Rose * Introduced 1988

LD Braithwaite is among several saturated red Austin roses.  In my trials this has been a weaker growing rose than the Squire.  The blooms are looser and the stature lower.  Now that I have cast it in a poor light I should also say that LD Braithwaite has been a more than satisfactory rose with a consistent show of blooms and little disease problems and I do like the dark red color a lot.   Unfortunately the purple flared a bit in this picture.  

This rose is the result of a cross between 'Mary Rose' and 'The Squire'
