‘Ronningii’. Angel’s Camp. Tea. Here is yet another old Tea Rose preserved at the Huntington Gardens in San Marino, its shapely, softly fragrant blooms reminiscent of a paler-toned ‘President Herbert Hoover’ in shades of pink and rose. Foliage is semi-glossy and dark green. There must be many old Teas surviving in old gardens in mild places like California, South Africa and Australia, giving a good account of themselves despite neglect, or perhaps because of it. Teas dislike any but the lightest pruning, and will shrink from the overzealous gardener’s secateurs.
