Notes:
This is a Setzer family rose. Carried from 18th-Century Virginia to (eventually) Arkansas, it was gifted to a family friend in Arkansas.
The young man who was given it propagated the rose and, eventually, gave a start to California Rosarian Joyce Demits, who briefly placed it into commerce.
This is a remarkably good rose!
