Bears medium-sized, cupped blooms of an unusually rich, pure yellow. There is a light Tea fragrance, with a cool violet character. It forms a bushy, upright and vigorous shrub, with attractive, smooth green foliage. David Austin, 1983.
Origin of Name
Named for the British horticulturist who was one of the most influential gardeners of his time. Graham Thomas was a frequent visitor to our nursery and offered encouragement and advice. He chose this rose himself. He gathered a collection of Old Roses, which formed the basis of the National Collection at Mottisfont Abbey in Hampshire.
