Comments There is a real delicacy to the flowers of this old tea. The pale apricot flowers are high-centered, opening with scrolled buds into a well formed old rose style flower. Under some conditions the flower will render more of a simple pink, but in any case the flower is fragrant. It's been in the Antique Rose Emporium catalogue for decades and we can expect it to be there for some time because this is a very beautiful tea rose as tough and disease resistant as it is beautiful.
