El Cid   Orange red Hybrid tea, plant patent applied for. A brilliantly hued new Hybrid Tea which will amaze you with its profuse flowering. In summer heat, the vibrant orange-red colour glows brightly, even when the color of the most roses looks washed out. Flower form is delightful in all stages and the pleasantly fragrant open blooms (4 to 5 inches across) have both the colour retention and substance to make them excellent keepers. The plant grows vigorously to medium height, somewhat spreading in habit, with flowers usually on a single stem. Winner of the Gold Medal at the Rome, Italy trials (1969).
