Hybrid Tea.  
Butter-yellow, pink edges.  Strong, fruity, spice fragrance.  48 to 72 petals.  Average diameter 4".  Large, very full (41+ petals), borne mostly solitary, high-centered to cupped bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Medium, upright.  Medium, semi-glossy, dark green foliage.  3 to 7 leaflets.  

Height: 4'11" to 5'7" (150 to 170cm).  
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.
