This fragrant rose produces large clusters of single to semi-double flowers over a very long period. The blooms are crimson-red with foliated sepals.

Named after the Franco-Flemish composer Roland de Lassus (1532-1594). Also known as Orlando di Lasso and Orlandus Lassus, he worked at the court of France, in Rome, in London and he died at Munich while he was court musician to William, Duke of Bavaria.
