January 2013, this is a seedling from a self-set hip from some random tea rose that grows in front of Mission Santa Barbara. In my greenhouse room. Does MUCH better under glass, outside it is creamy white with some yellow in the center. No idea what the parent is, Souvenir d'Elise de Vardon is a candidate and seems the best match. This one also does NOT do well budded, refuses to throw basals. Own root and/or budded it is gangly and has almost no foliage. A budded survived outside here in 6a so it is NOT pure tea. I call her "Hope" because I actually tried to kill the seedling----it appeared 9 months after sowing in a house plant pot and I ignored one point I potted it up....glad I did........thorny and disease resistant, wish I knew the Mom and a bee can only tell me the Dad..............
