Betsy likes red roses -- and just about every other color of rose -- and we have several red ones. Alec's Red is one of the roses growing in a container along our driveway, and is a new rose for this year. Alec's Red has a slight fragrance, but a beautiful form.

In case you're interested (I was), Alec Cocker is the Scottish hybridizer who introduced this rose in 1970.
