Double Delight Hybrid Tea Rose

This is a Double Delight Hybrid Tea.  It starts out as red with a bud that reveals a center of yellow as it opens, then fades to a white center as it matures.  The "double delight" is that this rose has a wonderful strong rose fragrance.  I have this rose in a large pot on my deck which is blooming as best it can in our heat.  This example was in the Cantigny Garden when we visited the Chicago area a few weeks ago.
