Excerpt from Spring 1970, the Star Roses Guide to Garden Pleasure

Striking picture. The color is a fiery red, and blooms come generally in clusters of 6 to 8 at the top of the sturdy canes. They are 3 to 4 inches across, with about 50 petals, double and well shaped. Comanche’s buds are deep brick-red but as they open they seem to catch on fire. Flowers are a warm orange-red, with a softer rosy red color on the outside of the petals. Leaves are extra dark and thick, a beautiful reddish bronze in the young stage and becoming more leathery as they develop. The plant is bushy and vigorous, up to 5 feet tall, and it blooms time after time until frost. A handsome rose to plant now and enjoy for years to come. Its color - like a splash of war paint - and its sturdy, upright manner of growing will make a wonderful contribution to any.
