Hybrid Tea.  
Apricot or apricot blend.  Mild fragrance.  26 to 40 petals.  Average diameter 5.5".  Large, full (26-40 petals) bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Medium, upright.  Large, semi-glossy, dark green foliage.  
Height of 4' 7" to 5¼' (140 to 160 cm).  
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).  Can be used for garden.  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:
Large formal flowers, unusual yellow peacock marking on the petal reverse, long stems
