'one who grows' is the definition.
The answer is a person as well as being a singular noun. This is suggested by the definition.

'red with anger perhaps' is the wordplay.
'with' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'perhaps' indicates anagramming the letters.
'red'+'anger'='redanger'
'redanger' is an anagram of 'GARDENER'.
