ARS:
Pink blend Hybrid Tea.
Registration name: Countess of Pembroke
Origin:
Bred by Henry Bennett (United Kingdom, 1882).
Introduced in Australia by Hazlewood Bros. Pty. Ltd. in before 1911 as 'Countess of Pembroke'.
Class:
Hybrid Tea.  
Bloom:
Light pink.  Strong, tea fragrance.  Very large, full (26-40 petals), cupped bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Habit:
Bushy, rounded.  
Growing:
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).  
Notes:
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.
