The rose in commerce under this name does not match historical descriptions of 'Hovyn de Tronchère' and appears identical to a rose found in California under the study name of "Whittle Light-Pink Tea." See Comments.
The Peter Beales Collection of Classic Roses 2000-2001 says Hovyn de Tronchère has flowers that are a mixture of reds, yellows and pinks.
