‘Warrawee’. Modern, large flowered hybrid tea. Medium pink, Repeat-flowering. Introduced in Australia and named after a suburb of Sydney, ‘Warrawee’ has quaint flowers that open to show the stamens clearly. The light pink, double blooms are large and have good Large-flowered exhibition style and an enduring fragrance. The vigorous bush grows into a small shrub with glossy foliage that prunes well into a nice shape, but must be looked after to ensure that it remains disease free. ‘Warrawee’ is best described as an early tea Rose and, although, not widely grown, it is still popular with people who like this type of rose; for that reason it will always have a following. It is not widely grown and some difficulty may be had in obtaining plants outside Australia. Zones 5-10. Fitzhardinge, Australia, 1935. ‘Padre’ x ‘Reverend F. Page-Roberts’.
