Just for the sake of publishing a nice image: 'Black Tea' bred by Kanjiro Okamoto of Japan, introduced into commerce in 1973. Its a Hybrid Tea, upright, stiff and rather awkward, with plenty of flesh-ripping thorns. Not a particularly good garden rose, it is grown for its Cinnamon/rust/Chocolate colored blooms which are notoriously difficult to photograph. (This photo doesn't quite get it right, but close) This is one of the so-called "brown" roses, an elite group that has become popular within certain circles in recent years.
