Pink blend Hybrid Tea.
Registration name: Viscountess Falmouth
Origin:
Bred by Henry Bennett (United Kingdom, 1879).
Class:
Hybrid Tea.

Light pink, pink reverse, red flecks.  Moderate, centifolia, magnolia fragrance.  Very large, double (17-25 petals), globular bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.

Armed with thorns / prickles.

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.
