‘Starlite’ is a Hybrid Tea created at Antibes, France, by Alain Meilland in 1995.
Its lemon yellow-coloured flowers, topping erect stems, open slowly and last long, and the colour does not fade over time.
It is a variety born to feed the cut flower industry by bein cultivated in nurseries and, thus, scarcely present in gardens.
