This is the English shrub rose L. D. Braithwaite. Again, sadly, the film does not do it justice. The flower are deep crimson, fading to a vivid purple as they age, and are characterized by a mass of green stamens. It has a very strong, damask fragrance, and is the thorniest rose that I have ever encountered. L.D. Braithwaite has joined the roses blooming in 1999; this one bloomed on the underside of the arbor, in the shade of Golden Showers, and has faded (if that's the right word) to a beautiful purple. The photo shows the actual color.
Given more sun, the blossoms have a much redder color.
