Gifted with many names because of its continued popularity ("Russells Cottage", "Scarlet Grevillea", "Old Spanish Rose", "Souvenir de la Bataille de Marengo") this hybrid of R. multiflora is in a class by itself. The very double, medium-size flowers of crimson mauve fading to lilac cover the bush in color each Spring. The scent is Damask, and the foliage is quite distinct- large, rich blue-green, deeply veined, and unmistakable. 'Russelliana' has been grown as a shrub, a climber, and as a pillar rose.
