Tea Clipper Rose

    Newer Older

    I spotted this very pretty Tea Clipper Rose in all it's beauty on a bright sunny day at the Briggs Nursery in North Attleboro Ma.

    Our wish is that English Roses should, unlike most Modern Roses, be as variable as possible in more than just colour; that each new variety should have its own unique character and beauty. ‘Tea Clipper’ is of a similar rich apricot to ‘Grace’ although in every other way it is a very different rose. The flowers are of an informal rosette shape and nicely quartered, each with a button eye which is retained to the end. It forms a large, rather upright shrub with its flowers nodding on the branch. It is almost completely without thorns and is particularly healthy. Usually the fragrance is a lovely mix of tea, myrrh and fruit, although sometimes it is almost pure citrus.

    ‘Tea Clipper’ (the last and finest of the sailing ships) is named to mark the centenary of the death of Frederick Horniman. He made his fortune as a tea trader and was a great collector. The Horniman Museum contains a fascinating collection of natural history specimens, cultural artefacts and musical instruments from around the world.
