I have no financial interest in this company nor have I tested these roses.

Henry - the link didn't work when I tried it.
Strange, it worked for me just now, Jackie. Try on another browser than the one you first used. There are also links to Flickr showing color images.
This one giving background information about them.
And, Henry's original link address. Perhaps copying and pasting might work better? Kim
Is Tesselaar the group that brought the world "Dream Roses"?
They appear to be Hulthemia hybrids from Interplant in The Netherlands.
The color makes me think of Hibiscus
Since the first time I saw Hulthemia, I've wanted that flower characteristic on a Mermaid! Imagine what that would look like! Kim
There is a parallel thread on this topic that you may find interesting.

Yes, this is the marketing group that brought us the Dream Roses. Their most successful rose promotion was Flower Carpet but that's losing steam now. They have to find a new nitch to stay in roses. They also have promoted other successes and failures. Tropicana canna being one of the better.
I really liked a couple of the Dream roses but cant find them now. I would love to try the Peach and Calypso. Wonder where these roses will be sold?
