This rose is a little hard to find in the US, but well worth a try. It was bred by Alan Meilland in France in 1992, on the 500th anniversary of Columbus' landing in the Americas.
The hybrid tea rose Christophe Colomb® Var. Meironsse (or Christopher Columbus) is a shrub about three to four feet high with large blooms of various shades of orange. There is only a slight mild fragrance, but the rose is a vigorous grower that re-blooms throughout the season.
If you can track this rose down, it would be a great addition to the fall garden, and it would make a great Columbus Day (October 12th) present.
Best in USDA Zones 7b and warmer. It requires spring freeze protection in colder areas. Removing spent blooms encourages re-flowering, and in spring, old canes and deadwood should be removed, and crossing canes should be cut back. In warmer regions, a little more pruning is best.
