As eyecatching as a bright red male cardinal in a snowy white landscape, the blooms on this super disease-resistant, cold-hardy shrub rose will wow you over three seasons! Boasting the best blackspot resistance we have seen, Kardinal™ also delivers self-cleaning flowers by the hundred!

Compact and vigorous, this shrub is clothed right down to the ground in glossy deep green foliage. Thanks to its improved disease resistance, the leaves look as good in October as they did in May! Just 3 to 4 feet high and 2 to 3 feet wide, Kardinal™ packs a wallop in any setting.

And where does it come by all these wonderful traits? From our friends at Kordes Roses in northern Germany, of course! They breed roses with no growth regulators, so all the vigor, the disease fighting power, and the adaptability are natural. As for the beautiful color, that's just an add-on!

The Kolorscape® series was originally intended for public spaces, where roses need to put on a show season after season, often with little maintenance. But Kardinal™ is too good to keep out of our home gardens!

These blooms reach just under 3 inches wide, with about 16 petals apiece (technically they are semi-double). They are not scented, which makes them ideal to plant among your fragrant roses and other aromatic garden plants. And they begin in late spring in most climates, appearing in great waves right up to frost. So simple, especially as they deadhead themselves!

Give Kardinal™ a go this season, and we predict you will become a Kolorscape® konvert! Zones 4-9.
