The hybrid tea from which it sported is Alexander which is an orange rose both beautiful and durable. How L'Oreal Trophy differs - is hard to explain, except that this rose's behavior seems more complex. Its blossom is an orange more pale, more variable, more mottled, more interesting and more difficult to describe. It has won more hearts and more awards than Alexander, too.
BTW: Alexander is the parent of Remember Me, a widely distributed orange hybrid tea, and the grandparent of Livin' Easy and Easy Going. And it is still in commercial distribution in Europe.
