'Hawaii', a coral orange hybrid tea, flaunted a light pink bloom an a short stem, from which bushes were budded; some had 'Hawaii's' exotic colouring while others were of the new light pink. Bushes from further buddings of the pink sometimes have blooms with an odd petal or two of the richer "Hawaii" colour.

....[the sport] is normal in behaviour, as in most cases is the strongly fragrant pink one of 'Hawaii' where occasionally is found the odd petal or two in 'Hawaii's rich colour.

Roy and Heather Rumsey, NSW.:
It is curious how we get two similar colours, new ones at that, in plants received from widely different sources in the one year. It happened last year with Hawaii, a beautiful decorative rose, and the peerless 'Super Star'. A little unfortunate really for one tends to outshine the other, but in fact both have their uses.

Novelty Roses 1962. Hawaii (HT. Boerner, Jackson & Perkins 1960) A true salmon orange with a slight touch of yellow at the base. The blooms are double and are produced on long healthy stems. Very fragrant. Should make an ideal garden rose and one we can thoroughly recommend. 10/6 each.
p13. Roy and Heather Rumsey, NSW. New Roses
Hawaii HT. A delightful colour of soft orange-coral. Long buds opening to semi-double large blooms which keep their pure colour until petals drop. Growth excellent.
p21. Dr. A. S. Thomas. New Roses in Victoria.
Hawaii HT. (Boerner, 1960) The deep coral or very light vermilion colouring is unique and it does not fade. Many blooms have faulty centres and the outer petals are more quilled than some growers like them, but it is a very beautiful rose with strong perfume (unusual in any vivid rose) and on very vigorous plants. The blooms last well.
