The Vintage Rosery
Unless otherwise noted, all photographs were taken of the roses in our gardens located in Needville, Texas (zone 8b.)
In typical Tea rose fashion, the new growth on `Amazone' is red. The buds are golden in color, and since it is a seedling of the apricot Tea `Safrano', it has the same cream/yellow coloring. The bush will get from 4' to 6' tall. The flowers are 3” across and reflex at maturity.
Bred in Lyon France in 1872 by Ducher from a Safrano seed.
