References in the Australian Rose Annual
1928 p 39 In his assessment of recently introduced decorative roses Sydney nurseryman Harry Hazlewood writes, “ There are several others of somewhat lesser value, though still good. Briarcliff, a pink Columbia sport; Dorina Neave, silvery pink; Golden Gleam, somewhat like Golden Emblem but smaller and with less petals; Mrs Lovell Swisher, lilac rose, with good shape and growth.”

1929 p153 – “Dorina Neave – A moderate grower only with me, but has many good points. Colour silvery pink; stems strong and erect; flowers freely, and have used them for exhibition purposes at times.” (Mr J.W. Firth, Thornbury, Victoria.)

1930 p 86 – Dorina Neave - listed among favourite paler pink roses for decoration. (Edith V. Oliver. Essenden, Victoria.)

1931 p81 – “Dorina Neave is a dual purpose rose for garden or exhibition, of a beautiful silvery pink of excellent shape and good growth.” (Alick Ross, Ashton, South Australia.)
1931 p109 – “Dorina Neave – Light silvery pink, darker on back of petals; large size; fine form.” (Ballarat Rose Test Garden – JW Clegg, Ballarat, Victoria)

1933 p93 Dorina Neave - Listed among roses in which “The Pernetiana strain is not very apparent, but there is undoubted evidence that Pernetiana blood is represented.” (Harry Hazlewood, Epping, NSW)
