After reading some of the references I question whether the inclusion of Zone 6b is appropriate or if it might do well in a colder zone.

Generally Tea Roses do best in Zone 8 and higher, in Zones 7a and 7b in favourable microclimate situations. Zone 6b is definitely exceptional, but they can survive with care and protection.

The scent on this rose is a mouth-watering mix of tea and fruit.

My huge bush is very prickly. I'm not sure why it is described as being thornless or nearly so.

You are right! It is definitely well-armed.

Probably because of the 1936 reference which said " few thick prickles".
Armature now corrected. Thanks to you both.

I wonder what Peter Beales was selling under this name in the 1980’s. In four of his catalogues he said it was a useful shorter rose, 3 feet high x 2 feet wide.

I blame Peter Beales for my entirely inappropriate planting of 'General Schablikine' lol. I had bought his book and read the "shorter" reference and planted it at the front of a bed. It's now HUGE! I wish I had known back then how big it grows in our climate.
