Rich of a strong damask scent, Rosa 'Crimson Glory' is a climbing hybrid tea rose with very large, double, deep crimson flowers, up to 6 in. across (15 cm), having as many as 26-40 petals. Blooming in flushes from early summer and throughout the season, the sumptuous blooms stand out against the dark green foliage and make an impressive display. Deep velvety crimson in color, the cupped petals hold a rich Damask fragrance.
To make hot rose tea: Place 5 blooms in a cup and steep them in boiling water for 10–20 minutes. Strain rose buds and pour hot tea into a teacup and enjoy.
