Medium pink Hybrid Tea.
Registration name: Warrawee
Seashell-pink, deep pink reverse. Moderate, clove fragrance. 30 petals. Average diameter 5". Very large, double (17-25 petals), high-centered bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season.
Bushy, upright. Dense, leathery foliage.
USDA zone 6b and warmer. 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.
Parentage is that reported in the patent and Australian Rose Annual 1932 and 1934.
The parentage was often reversed and hints of 'Ophelia' blood occur in the references.
'Warrawee' was named after the suburb in which the breeder lived.
