There are two hybrid tea roses by this name. One is classified as a large flowered climber, released by Warriner in 1986. It is rated highly by growers in warm, dry places. In the best of conditions the color of the rose falls somewhere between yummy butterscotch hard candies and caramel, but under many conditions it's more a faded buff and not very special. The form is reliably high centered, though the flowers can lose shape in as little as a day. According to Paul Barden
the foliage is pretty disease-resistant, suggesting that this might be a very good rose to grow where it is cold hardy. I saw Butterscotch growing once in Houston where it stood six feet high and six or seven feet wide trained up the corner of an iron fence. It was a sight to behold, and more than a decade later I remember it distinctly.
The other is a rose by Hill which we will not talk about here.
