'Cynthia Brooke' Hybrid Tea 1943

I fell in love with this rose many years ago when I was first going mental over roses due to having checked out from the Denver Botanic Gardens library a copy of Peter Beales' '20th Century Roses'. I bought from in the mid 90s from a California grower, but it very soon succumbed to the "Black Death" that killed about 40% of the roses I ever bought from him. Desert Roses is having a closeout sale, so I e-mailed Cliff an order including this lovely gem and others to try here in Tampa in my Water Wise Container Gardens. Look at the form and color!!  John
