Although Hannah Gordon is often listed as another name for Tabris or Nicole, all three of these sister seedlings actually are different roses. Confusion in the rose trade has led to many cases of mislabeling. Hannah Gordon is the "middle sister," taller than Nicole and shorter than Tabris. In contrast to the other two, Hannah Gordon has white blooms with narrow coral-pink edges. The other two have white blooms with wider edges of pink or cherry-red.
