Red Empress

Shrub Rose

Brindabella Roses™

Brindabella Roses™ Red Empress reigns supreme, pairing the red rose of classic lore with the most modern advancements in breeding. Blooms may range from violet-pink at the height of summer to a rich crimson red as temperatures cool. The mildew- and black spot-resistant foliage is as clean as it comes with roses, and Brindabella roses rebloom every 6 - 8 weeks without deadheading. The healthy, dense shrubs get to 4’ feet tall and wide within two years, and stay there -- without pruning!
