In 1985, the [Rosen-Tantau's] fortune and rose-breeding operations passed into the hands of long-time colleague Hans Jürgen Evers. Successful new introductions like 'Diadem' and 'Monica', which helped bring the moderately profitable field-growing of cutting roses in Germany to a renaissance in the 1980s, are his works.

'Monica' HT. This is one for the back of the border as bushes are very tall, strong growing and healthy. Blooms are not large but come on nice long stems for picking and they are in a striking colour combination orange with a yellow reverse. Although tall bushes stand the wind well. Bred by Tantau.
