I would KILL to get my hands on this Hybrid Tea!!! I have been looking for it for YEARS with no luck. I won't give up but it is looking bleak. I have been to the end of the internet (and the earth for that matter) and came up with BUCKUS!

If anyone knows where I can get it mail order, please send me a message!

Thanks!

This rose has the shiniest foliage and the most colorful blooms! It's such a joy to see it bloom. The more sun the rose gets the darker the pink gets on the petals. If it is kept from the sun, the petals only have a thin edge of pink around them.
