"Trinity" is one of the loveliest of the Mystery Roses. A bush of this rose was first found growing just inside the wall at Holy Trinity Church in Bailey's Bay. Fortunately, members of the Society took slips so that "Trinity" still blooms there on a child's grave. The long pointed buds are pale pink opening into pure white loose 4in. (10cm) flowers. A constant bloomer.

"Trinity". T. Rapid rebloom. Outstanding fragrance. Habit [diagram] 2. Bermuda, found. [Provenance: Manners; Bermuda]. In Everblooming Roses, Georgia Torrey Drennan lists among her white Tea roses one she calls Rosa Alba, and remarks "The first white Tea rose. Semi-Double". this raises a flag for us in trying to identify this simple, semi-double Tea found in Bermuda. We find no other reference to a Tea rose by this name. Lovely, clean white blossoms on a bushy and productive plan that is one of our favorite Tea roses, simple as it is.
