Comments Its breeder, Gregory, was evidently aiming for a hybrid tea rose with the vigor and disease resistance of Queen Elizabeth and a slightly warmer and darkly shaded flower. The plant is not quite so big and chunky, but the flower is a warm coral or salmon shade of pink. There is a climbing sport.
