(Climbing Tea) Very scented, large fully double flowers of buff, amber and apricot, with tints of pink deep in the centre. The repeat flowering blooms when fully open are often quartered and are complemented with large dark green leaves. Said to be the first of the Tea roses. Probably a vigorous bush at introduction but better grown as a climber on a short wall, where it can enjoy protection from the severest weather of winter. Can be grown as a shrub with support. Bred by Adam.
