This hybrid tea has exceptionally strong and thick canes, and it's a good thing it does because the blooms are huge! The bush itself is also quite large (about 4-5 feet tall and at least 3 feet wide in my zone 9 garden). The blooms are creamy white with pink edges, they have a strong citrus scent, and they initially have a perfect high-centered shape, after which they relax and display a less formal arrangement of petals.
