The large globular, semi-double rose flowers on this rose are usually single, but can come in clusters of 4, on long stems that make nice cut flowers. The 3" size pink roses last a long time in the vase when cut.

This one is among the hardiest of tea roses, and is easily propagated from cuttings. It is hardier than 'most' tea roses.

Adam repeats blooms all season, giving you plenty of cut flowers for the vase.

The Adam Tea rose, named after its hybridizer, was popular throughout the nineteenth century. 

This lovely rose was raised by Monsieur Adam in his own garden at Rheims in France.

The flowers grow on short canes that have hooked, purple colored prickles (thorns).

The large, eventually dark green leaves open a beet red color, like the new growth.

The height this rose will get depends entirely on the climate it is planted in. Growing conditions determine whether it will be a sizable bush or a tall climbing rose.

It could grow 3 1/2' by 6 1/2', or it could get to be a 16 1/2' climber.

Warmer climates generally experience a taller and larger size bush.

Although it is considered relatively healthy growing, the one weakness with this rose is that it tends to get mildew in damp, wet weather.

This hybrid tea rose  called 'Adam' helped to establish the reputation of the (then new) class of roses. It is sometimes referred to as 'The first tea rose'.

Possible parentage of this rose;

'Humes Blush' x 'Rose Edouard'
