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
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.
