Hybrid Tea.  
Orange, yellow undertones.  None / no fragrance.  35 to 40 petals.  Average diameter 3.5".  Large, full (26-40 petals), borne mostly solitary, high-centered bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  Long, pointed, ovoid buds.  
Medium, upright.  Glossy, dark green, leathery foliage.  5 to 7 leaflets.

USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).  Can be used for cut flower or garden.  Very vigorous.  Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom.  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.
