This very floriferous climber, which can reach a height of 16 to 22 feet, produces clusters of carmine-red flowers with white centers. Canes are well armed. This rose also makes a very beautiful display of heps.
Named after Renault de Coucy, one of the first known trouvères with work known to us. He lived in the second half of 12th century. As a famous knight, he became involved with the Crusades in 1187, and died in Palestine five years later. The tragic history of his love with the Lady of Fayel was the subject of a novel in the 13th century.
