Comments: This is a hybrid tea rose that produces large coral pink flower buds with darker pink on the back sides of the petals. It is an upright grower and has dark green lush foliage. As with all roses, fertilize in late winter and again in midsummer. Prune in late winter and again in August in the Lower South where plant growth is quite rapid. Pests include blackspot on leaves, aphids, spider mites and powdery mildew.
