Pink blend Hybrid Tea.
Bred by Anne G. Cocker (1920-2014) (Scotland, before 1974).
Introduced by Unknown (Australia) in 1981 as 'Silver Jubilee'.
Hybrid Tea.  
Pink blend.  Mild fragrance.  33 petals.  Average diameter 5".  Large, double (17-25 petals), high-centered bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season, occasional repeat later in the season.  
Height of 35" to 4¼' (90 to 130 cm).  Width of 2' to 30" (60 to 75 cm).
USDA zone 7b and warmer.  Does not do well in warmer climates.  Disease susceptibility: very disease resistant.  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.  Requires spring freeze protection (see glossary - Spring freeze protection) .  
Some question about parentage, see References.
Silver Jubilee was removed from the Auckland Regional Botanic Gardens (ARBG) Display Trial because its trial period expired.
