Pink blend Hybrid Tea.
Registration name: RDSarrow
Exhibition name: Straight Arrow ™
Bred by Richard D. Streeper (United States, 2003).
Hybrid Tea.  
Pink to red.  None to mild fragrance.  17 to 25 petals.  Average diameter 4.5".  Large, double (17-25 petals), borne mostly solitary, exhibition bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Tall, upright.  Large, glossy, dark green foliage.  
Height of 5' to 7' (150 to 215 cm).  
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).  Can be used for cut flower, exhibition or 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:
Rust and mildew free; brilliant blooms borne on very long sturdy, straight stems.
