This great Hybrid tea rose
owes it's vigor and hardiness to some great ancestors. Among them is
"Queen Elizabeth", "Dr. W. Van Fleet", "General Jacqueminot", and "Tip
Toes". You'll also find some impressive roses in it's ancestors such as " Dr. W. Van Fleet", and "Queen Elizabeth". All contribute greatly to the hardiness, vigor and floriferousness of the bush.
These orange colored roses were bred by amateurs, and then introduced in New York state.
