Medium red Hybrid Tea.
Registration name: Marilyn Wellan
Exhibition name: Marilyn Wellan
Bred by Eddie Edwards (United States, 2005). Bred by Ethan Phelps (United States, 2005).
Hybrid Tea.  
Red.  Moderate fragrance.  17 to 25 petals.  Average diameter 5".  Large, double (17-25 petals), borne mostly solitary, exhibition bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Tall, upright.  Large, glossy, dark green foliage.  
Height of 5' to 6' (150 to 185 cm).  
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).  Can be used for cut flower, exhibition, garden or specimen.  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:
Medium to dark pink in hot weather; red in cool weather.
