Brent Dickerson advises:
Jacksonville Pink Tea. Unidentified Tea rose found evidently in Jacksonville, Oregon. Definitely a Tea in appearance, habit, and flower-scent. Near-continuous bloom. Coloration varies lighter to darker from season to season but, in coastal Southern California, most often the same as that of the Bourbon 'Souvenir de la Malmaison'. Form of flower suggests that it is one of the earlier Teas, perhaps ca. 1840s-1850s. Flowers open fully and easily. Forms hips. Vigorous and well-branched growth. A fine rose.
