Pink blend Hybrid Tea.
Bred by Anne G. Cocker (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.
