One of the tallest hybrid teas in my garden, Lady Mavis Pilkington produces blooms that can best be described as delicious-looking. The blooms exhibit the colors of a tropical fruit medley -- a blend of mango, papaya, melon, and an occasional touch of pineapple. The fragrance is slight and quite refreshing.

The rose bush usually is advertised as a small hybrid tea, 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide. Mine, from Palatine, is grafted onto Multiflora rootstock and is at least 7 feet tall and 5-6 feet wide.
