Comments Given perfect conditions, it puts out flowers with good regularity. They are pale pink and very redolent of tea. But in dampish conditions the flowers fail to open well. And there are complaints far and wide of too easily falling prey to mildew and black spot. If one lives where none of these problems can exist, the rose might please enormously.
