The Teasing Georgia rose, is a very graceful rose that has the most exquisite blooms.
The flowers on these yellow English shrub roses are golden yellow in the center, with
creamy white edges, and shades of honey, lemon, and buff in between. Sort of creamy light yellow, with shades of apricot.
The cup formation of these English roses is quite beautiful. The center petals form a deep yellow cup. The outer petals turn back, and fade to a paler yellow, giving the rose a two-toned effect.
The flowers are extremely full of petals, cupped but quartered, and
sometimes nod from their own weight. The beautiful flowers usually appear singly,
but sometimes come in small clusters.
