I really think this is one of the most outstanding hybrid teas around. Gorgeous blooms with perfect form. They stay on the bush for days. I also have a tender spot for her because I have won many ribbons in rose exhibitions with this very plant. If you are looking for a creamy apricot rose that needs little maintenance then this is the rose for you. The problem most people including myself make with hybrid teas is not realizing the incredible amount of space they need to really thrive especially in coastal areas were it never reaches freezing temperatures.
