Hybrid Tea.  
Fuchsia / magenta, fuchsia / magenta reverse.  Strong fragrance.  26 to 40 petals.  Average diameter 5".  Large, full (26-40 petals), borne mostly solitary bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Tall, upright.  Large, glossy, dark green foliage.  
Height of 47" to 4' 7" (120 to 140 cm).  
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).  Can be used for cut flower, garden or landscape.  Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom.  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.  
Breeder's notes:
Large blooms; strong fragrance; large foliage, even color.
