The deep magenta-crimson blooms are full petalled; the outer petals turning back creating a perfectly formalised, deeply domed shape. The blooms are set against dark green foliage producing, overall, a very attractive dark effect. ‘Noble Antony’ is a particularly good rose for cutting for arrangements in the home, where its beauty can be fully appreciated. It has a delightful, rich Old Rose scent and won the prize for fragrance at the Glasgow trials. This reliable shrub, with its compact growth, is a good choice for smaller gardens or for bedding. Placed at the front of the border, its bold colouring will create contrast amongst plants of softer shades.
