Pink blend Hybrid Tea.

The internet is abuzz with home gardeners’ photos showing off these huge, perfect, 5″ flowers on 20″ long straight stems, excellent for cutting: rose pornography at its very best. The colors are delicious: a rich rosy coral blended with a smooth, silky cream, and the form is exquisite. The fragrance, they say, is light and pleasing. Looking at the pictures, I can easily understand why so many proud parents are carrying on shamelessly over this new addition to the rose family. I’m afraid this is going to be the rose that forces me to break down and buy a digital camera.

Pink blend, pink edges. Mild fragrance. 25 to 30 petals. Average diameter 5″. Double (17-25 petals), borne mostly solitary, high-centered bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season.
