First Category (Hybrid Tea or Grandiflora):
Gold Award

Etienne (HUBar20009-2) is a Hybrid Tea with light pink, cup-shaped flowers that open into rosettes from Huber of Switzerland.. The fragrance is Damask Classic: a soft powdery scent on blooming, progressing to a fresh green scent with violet and leafy notes. When the rose has bloomed fully the fragrance becomes increasingly fruity with berry notes and a honey-like sweetness to produce the classic rose fagrance.
