Silver Jubilee
A most beautiful Hybrid Tea, it appears to be completely resistant to disease. The established trees are seldom without flower and are beautifully clad in mid-green glossy foliage down to ground level. The colour is best described as a confection of pink, apricot, peach and cream. Every bloom comes in perfect shape and form. Silver Jubilee was named by kind permission of Her Majesty the Queen.

Awards: President's International Trophy 1977; Gold Medal for the best new rose at the Royal National Rose Society's Trials 1980; Gold Medal for the best Hybrid Tea rose Belfast 1980; James Mason Memorial Medal for the rose judged to have given most pleasure in the last fifteen years.

Parentage: (Seedling x Parkdirektor Riggers x Piccadilly) x Mischief.
