Shot Silk. How could you not
fall in love with this Tea beauty? No photograph can do it justice. Introduced into
commerce in 1924 the flowers are cherry-cerise, shading to golden yellow at their base
with an overall silvery silky shine, impressed even the judges at the 1923 National Rose
Society who award it the Gold Medal. The blooms are double with 27 petals, high centered
and very fragrant. The foliage is glossy and slight curled on this vigorous plant. The
thorns are numerous, but with ever blooming roses on this plant, you won't mind. Hardy in
zones 6 - 9.
