It's not just gentlemen that prefer blondes, everyone loves this shapely Hybrid Tea named to honor an American legend. The extraordinarily feminine creamy apricot color holds through from the long pointed buds to the big buxom open blooms. A gown of deep green leaves graces the cutting length stems. Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but the super vase life and perfect flower form on this gem-of-a-rose will demand the devotion of every exhibitor. Some like it hot! The best apricot for hot weather.
