Hey I have a Joseph's Coat, mine is a climber. I don't know enough about roses to know if that color variety comes in tea roses. But mine is a beautiful on the fence line.

Details... Joseph's Coat is a climbing "floribunda" (clusters of medium sized blooms) created in 1964. Since the 1960's rose breeders have come up with all kinds of colors. Definitely not an "antique" color.

I need a life...

um, did you agree with me?

Yes and no. Joseph's Coat is a lovely climber - Floribunda not a Tea rose.

Tea and floribunda roses are like bermuda and saint augustine grasses. Different.

Way too much information.
