Sunset Celebration

Hybrid Tea - Creamy apricot amber blend

 

1998 AARS winner.  Sometimes sunset hues are apricot burnished with cream, sometimes amber orange blushed with warm pink and sometimes a clear warm rich pink. It just depends on which sunset. The ‘sunset’ in this case is the famed Sunset Magazine celebrating its 100th anniversary with this striking award winner. All these colors can come forth from this attractive well-formed Hybrid Tea, depending on your locale. No matter where it’s grown, though, the plant fills out beautifully, full of clean green foliage and long stemmed blossoms. A truly international rose, it’s already picked up Gold Medals at The Hague, Belfast and La Roeulx (Belgium), Silver Medals at Genoa and Monza, plus the RINZ winner in New Zealand.
