“Romantica” Series roses feature the look of Old Garden Roses (OGRs) on modern bushes. Since traditional OGRs grow better in cooler climates, these bushes allow Hawaii gardeners to grow modern-day OGR lookalikes in their gardens.
Introduced as “Comtesse de Provence” (also current exhibition name) but renamed after actress “Liv Tyler” in 2006. Coral-red high centered bloom that usually blooms one to a stem but sometimes clusters.
