Comments Pink roses of typical tea rose form adorn a tall and well branched shrub. The color may be a warmish shade of rose that is close to candy pink or perhaps coral. At other times it may be closer to a cerise or magenta. Occasionally the flower may approach crimson. In any case, the blossoms look good against foliage that is bronze-hued when young and retains a touch of the same purplish cast as it ages.

BTW: Papa Gontier is the seed parent of the much more famous tea rose Lady Hillingdon, and grandparent to Gruss an Teplitz, a WFRS prize winning old rose.
