Flower of the Day (FOTD): Chrysler Imperial Rose

Self’s newest rose is a Chrysler Imperial. She bought it in February from Home Depot. The following month she was gone, and she didn’t get home again until June. It had hardly grown. But a few days ago, it produced one enormous bloom. It’s past its first flush, and it’s been very hot here on the Peninsula, but the red is like nothing she’s seen before. She’s never seen an actual Chrysler Imperial, but if it’s red like this rose, well — !
