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 consist ent 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.
