A new and distinct variety of Hybrid Tea rose plant is provided which forms
attractive large double blossoms with a spicy fragrance that are
amber-orange in coloration. The plant exhibits a bushy, vigorous and
uniform growth habit, medium green foliage, and good tolerance to rose
black spot. The attractive medium green foliage contrasts nicely with the
lighter-colored blossoms. The new variety is particularly well suited for
growing as attractive ornamentation in the landscape such as in parks and
gardens. Cut flower production also is possible.
