Mauve or mauve blend Hybrid Tea.
Registration name: Jean Sisley
Lilac - pink, outer petals, light pink center. None / no fragrance. Very large, full (26-40 petals) bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season.
Height of 2' to 3' (60 to 90 cm). Width of 2' (60 cm).
USDA zone 6b and warmer. Disease susceptibility: susceptible to Mildew. Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.
Bennett always speaks of using the 'President' in his crosses, not 'Adam'. The synonmyity of these two is questionable. It is more probable that Bennett used the rose marketed by Paul in England since 1860 than the much earlier Tea by Adam.
