Comments There exist at least two roses sold into the florist trade by this name, and we refer here to neither of them. Rather, we refer to a very tall hybrid tea rose that produces very tall hybrid tea rose blossoms in a soft coral that has some salmon highlights. Frequenty the rose looks pink, though sometimes it may approach orange; but in all its manifestations it looks tall, elegant, feminine, and beautiful. Sadly, there is not much fragrance; and the plant is not very cold hardy. It appears to be a good rose for Mediterranean climates.
