Bred by Henry Bennett (United Kingdom, 1882).

Tea.

Yellow, pink shading, deep yellow center.  Outer petals pinkish yellow.  Moderate fragrance.  Medium to large, semi-double to double, globular, high-centered bloom form.  Occasional repeat later in the season.  Long, pointed buds.

Bushy.

Bennett always speaks of using the 'President' in his crosses, not 'Adam'. The synonmyity of these two is questionable. It is more probable that Bennett used the rose marketed by Paul in England since 1860 than the much earlier Tea by Adam.
