Nicole and Hannah Gordon are sister seedlings that have been confused in commerce in the USA for more than 20 years. Hannah Gordon is a tall, vigorous grower, while Nicole is a modest two to three-foot plant. Hannah Gordon is known in New Zealand as Raspberry Ice. Tabris is a name given to Hannah Gordon by one seller in the Netherlands.
To confuse matters further, a third rose registered in 1999, Glenda Marie, has been sold as Nicole by Edmunds. Glenda Marie has shrimp pink blooms but is otherwise a tall, vigorous grower like Hannah Gordon.
