Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Easy to grow and always in bloom, this unknown old Tea is what one might term "gardener friendly". The double, loosely-formed pale pink flowers seem the sort that Grandmother might have pinned to her shawl so she could enjoy the perfume as she went about her daily chores. Apparently this rose was quite popular since we found it at the homes of Mrs. Morton and Mrs. Goree, both of Navasota, and the home of Mrs. Odee of Brenham. The proximity of Afflecks nursery to these communities suggests that it may have originally come from his collection."
