Tea Roses are roses that were produced prior to 
1867.  They are called tea roses because it is said they acquired a tea scent from being shipped in tea crates in the 1800's from Europe to America. They a repeat bloomers and ease care.

Mrs. Dudley Cross's bloom has a light lemon yellow with light pink coloring on the edges.I enjoy watching the bloom through the stages of opening.
