Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"The fine rosarian, Mrs. Cleo Barnwell, obtained a start of this plant from Jose Marrero in Puerto Rico. Narrower than many Tea bushes in habit, "Puerto Rico" retains the typical good health and sturdy growth of the class. The medium-sized, very fragrant flowers bloom in loose clusters of three, opening from a cupped shape to nearly flat. The color is creamy white with just a hint of apricot-pink, and is a lovely addition to floral arrangements. Fragrance is sweet and clean."
