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: 5' to 7' (150 to 215cm).  
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.
Patent status unknown (to HelpMeFind).
