One of the most popular early hybrid teas in this color range was Sterling Silver. It had great fragrance and a unique color at the time and was widely marketed. The problem was, it was a puny, stingy plant producing 3 or 4 blooms in a flush. Neptune is the remedy for a stingy bloomer. This prolific rose has stunning color, wonderful fragrance, perfect form and is borne on a plant that is healthy and vigorous. A hybrid tea bred by Tom Carruth.
