The Sanguine Rose is a Daedric artifact of Lord Sanguine, received after completing "A Night to Remember" which requires a level of fourteen or above. Sanguine Rose is a magic staff resembling an off-scale flower adorned with thorns and the petals of a red tea rose.
The Rose summons either a Dremora Kynreeve, Dremora Caitiff, Dremora Kynmarcher, Dremora Valkynaz, or a Dremora Markynaz (depending on player level) to fight for the wielder for sixty seconds. Killing the Dremora that is summoned does not relinquish a Daedra heart, nor can the construct be Soul Trapped. Followers can wield and employ the Sanguine Rose. Unlike its Oblivion counterpart, the Dremora always fights for the Dragonborn. There is a chance it will only summon a leveled Daedra.
