A valuable rose parent, 'Marie van Houtte' is described as having large, globular flowers of lemon yellow, deeper in the center, with pinkish lilac suffusing the tips of the petals. Its dark, shiny and occasionally evergreen foliage is a good foil to the light flowers. The coloration of the blossom is very similar to the popular Tea, 'Mrs. Dudley Cross', however, the bush is much more substantial. We affectionately refer to this rose as "Mrs. Dudley Cross on steroids."
