Comments There exist only about half a dozen hybrid tea roses that blend yellow and white successfully. The result in each case is a rose of rare beauty. In this case the flower is large and its fragrance strong. The form might be a little relaxed and informal for exhibition. It is quite resistant to mildew; not quite so resistant to black spot. It thrives in warm weather, suggesting it might best be grown in parts of Arizona, California, Nevada, and Oregon. Where it is happy, its delicious scent and great beauty will bring much joy to the garden.
