This is a seedling that germinated under one of the greenhouse benches several years ago. Its exact origin is not known, but based on what crosses I made in 2002 I suspect that it is from ‘Condoleezza’, and may have “Orange Moss” as a pollen parent.

This is a Spring blooming variety and has developed as a tall, lanky climber, much in the manner of mosses like ‘William Lobb’. The bloom form is utterly modern as is it coloring. I don’t recall that blooms have much fragrance, except in the mossing itself.

This has been extremely healthy in the greenhouse (Mildew rarely troubles it) and so I have decided to start using this in breeding. Because it gets no particular care and thrives in near total neglect, it may have value in breeding. I am considering releasing limited numbers of this, as it may appeal to those who enjoy “collectors item” type roses.
