Mauve or mauve blend Hybrid Tea.
Registration name: Silver Shadows
Bred by Dr. Griffith J. Buck (United States, 1984).
Hybrid Tea.  Buck Roses Collection.  
Mauve or purple blend.  Strong, citrus fragrance.  Average diameter 3".  Double (17-25 petals), cupped bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Height of 3' to 5' (90 to 150 cm).  Width of 3' to 4' (90 to 120 cm).
USDA zone 5b through 9b.  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.  
'Silver Shadows' and 'Blue Skies' were said to be sibling roses. However the parentage is different in both roses.
