Red Eden

Red Eden
Rose of the Month For September, 2007
by Barbara Picarelli

Dorothy Arnold and I were pruning roses at the MAGC garden, and I finally remembered to bring my camera for some photo shots to use in this article. Well, I got several, so this will be first of a series about the roses in our garden at MAGC.

‘Red Eden’ is a lovely climber, and a gorgeous dark burgundy red. I’m not much of a red fan, but this rose is super with its dense petals that almost seem ruffled. ‘Red Eden’ has up to 110 petals (I always wonder about people who sit and count the petals) with blooms a good 3 inches across. It’s a prolific rebloomer and a vigorous climber, growing up to 12-15 feet. ‘Red Eden’ is disease free with lovely dark green semi glossy foliage. The one drawback to the rose is light or no fragrance. There is no ARS rating yet.

Bred in France in 2004 by Meilland, it was introduced in the U.S. in 2004 by Star Roses. This rose has a lot of aliases aka ‘Eric Tabarly’ (the name under which it is to be exhibited), MEIdrason, ‘Red Edenrose’ and ‘Red Pierre’. The rose is available at Armstrong, Petaluma Rose and Regan nurseries.
