Grootendorst Supreme is the dark red sport of the Grootendorst family of cluster blooming fringed flowered rugosas.  The flowers resemble carnations.   The Grootendorst roses are some of the easiest we grow.  We tend to ignore them and then all at once in June, they explode with color and the blooms keep coming in waves all through the growing season.  Grootendorst Supreme is one of those shrubby roses.  It is about as wide as it is tall.
