John F. Kennedy

Hybrid Tea

Cherished mostly as a tribute to the popular President, the slow-opening fragrant flowers of rich white start off with an unusual greenish cast in the bud stage. The extra full petalage stands up well to hot weather. Beloved by many. Needs warm night temps to open best.
