The Vintage Rosery
Unless otherwise noted, all photographs were taken of the roses in our gardens located in Needville, Texas (zone 8b.)
Could there be a more beautiful example of the Tea rose class? The buds of `Safrano' are a long-pointed saffron yellow color. They open to a double pale yellow. The new growth is plum colored. Its size can be from 4' to 6'. Like all our Tea roses, it seems to love the Texas heat.
