        R. 'Glowing Embers' is a cross between R. griersonianum and R. 'Romany Chal' made by John Henny of Brooks, Ore. The truss is of medium size and dome shaped and intense scarlet in color. It blooms in the late season. The corollas are widely funnel campanulate and the stamens and pistol but partially developed. They have good substance and last very well considering the late blooming period. The plant is slow growing and has dark green leaves.
        As R. 'Romany Chal' is a cross between R. eriogynum and R. 'Moser's Maroon' it can be seen that there are at least three red species in the bloodlines of R. 'Glowing Embers'.
