A Happy Valentines Day to all, this rose is another from Kings Park here in Launceston. I did venture into the park a couple of days ago but those roses in flower were wind burnt and not very attractive, this image from April of 2007.

Helen Traubel, bred by Herb Swim in 1951.

Breeding: 'Charlotte Armstrong' x 'Glowing Sunset'.

'Helen Traubel' is a modest-sized Hybrid Tea, bushier than its modern counterparts and slower to build into a substantial plant. If you have the right climate to grow it, it can be very beautiful; full blooms of exquisite form, very large and well-scented like the Teas; a moody fragrance reminiscent of Camphor. Its colour is like several of the early Hybrid Teas; luminous shades and hues of peach, coral, salmon and hints of carmine at the petals edges. This wonderful colour is no doubt inherited from its Pernetiana ancestry. [/i]

Hello David,
Too cute- a shy rose hiding behind the leaves. Excellent colours and lighting .
Informative notes as well. The best! A Valentines hug sent to you from me...Joni

Hi David,

Indeed the rose seems to hide herself behind those leaves, but I think Valentines day is more about innocent and romantic love and not about pure passion - but then again it is not really big here in the Netherlands.
A lovely contribution on this day, the gallery sure looks nice this way,

Have a lovely day
