‘Bobby Charlton’ = Hybride de Thé. Solitaire au bout d’une longue tige… fleur géante et pleine, relevée d’un fort parfum poivré… l’une des meilleures pour les expositions florales. Rose intense à l’éclosion, irisée d’argent sur le revers des pétales, elle est très sensible à la pluie… En climat favorisé, l’arbuste peut se faire rosier de jardin, mais produire des fleurs aussi plantureuses et ouvragées ne lui permet guère d’être prolifique et fin d’été et en automne… feuillage sombre et ferme... Il rend hommage à un virtuose du ballon rond, 106 sélectionné dans l’équipe d’Angleterre. Fryer, UK 1974.

Bobbie Charlton Perfect as a cut flower, retaining its half-opened form for days. It may not open widely enough to please some Australian judges of specimen blooms. American judges will probably be very enthusiastic over this feature. Tall, upright plants.

Bobbie Charlton HT. (Fryer, 1974). 'Royal Highness' x 'Prima Ballerina'.  Of only medium size but a really outstanding dual purpose two-tone pink rose. Strong perfume. A good grower. I saw many blooms of this rose at several shows in England in 1973 (before it was on sale) and 1976.

Also I have Bobby Charlton, HT. (Fryer, 1972), which had appealed to me very much in England in 1973 and 1976, but the plants came late and have not bloomed at the time of reporting. It is a fine big two-toned pink rose of excellent form with a very high pointed centre. Its only possible fault is a tendency to quilling by the outer petals as in 'Anne Letts'.
