Brad Jalbert’s descriptions:

‘Scarlet Pearl’ ---Shrub Rose---
Flower : Bright red, single (5 petals) with white eye. Clusters of wonderful “Wild Rose” looking flower.
Fragrance : Light.
Growth habit : Vigorous and bushy. Great for mass planting.
Foliage : Dark green, glossy and healthy.
Comments : Another wonderful landscape rose for any garden. This one was hybridized by my friend George Mander of Coquitlam, B.C. It is one of the toughest roses and very easy to grow. The flowers are born in waves all summer long and can even be used as a cut flower. Highly recommended as a low maintenance landscape shrub for mixed beds or hedges.

Note: Brad Jalbert is the owner of the local Miniature Nursery, “Select Roses” located 50 Km east of Vancouver, B.C. ( west coast of Canada) This Nursery is the first to introduce any new roses of mine.
