A really pretty hybrid tea. I grow it in my south side rose garden. Like all my HTs, it needs to be sprayed with a systemic fungicide here in my humid Long Island, New York garden.

One of the most fragrant roses in my garden; you can smell it standing a few feet away in the earlier parts of the day, before the fragrance fades in the afternoon sun. The blooms are very large and are the color of fruit punch. I always get excited when the buds start to unfurl, as I know I will be in for a real treat for the senses over the next few days. The blooms are reasonably long lasting and very showy.

Possibly the best smelling rose, ever! I adore mine even though it has a tendency to get Black Spot; it is chronic in my area. If this rose is deadheaded, it will bloom continuously. A wonderful rose.
