Hybrid Tea.  
Butter-yellow, pink edges.  Strong fragrance.  48 to 72 petals.  Average diameter 5".  Large, very full (41+ petals), borne mostly solitary bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Medium, upright.  Medium, matte, light green foliage.  
Height of 4' 11" to 5' 7" (150 to 170 cm).  
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).  Can be used for cut flower, garden, landscape 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:
Very ruffled flowers blush to deep pink on the finish, clean and vigorous.
