Notes:
This rose was named after a Geelong, Victoria, florist and the proceeds from the sale of the rose were donated to the Geelong Horticultural Society.

The great grandmother (or great grand seed parent) was 'Frau Karl Druschki', which may explain the large petals and the lack of fragrance in this rose. However, Mrs. Watson’s family have some doubts about the veracity of the rose in commerce in Australia
