Seems like wichurana derived shrublet x Crimson Bouquet. At least that is my estimation.

Me too Margaret, but what gripes me is, for such an important date in our young culture , why they did not use a rose bred in Australian, by an Australian breeder. Its like seeing those stuffed souvenirs of Koalas and Kangaroos and you look at the label and its got made in China. I think the RSL got this very wrong this time.

Yes
Kordes also named a rose of theirs Kookaburra.
I am growing George Thomson's Fields iof Fromelle because the Western Front is very significant to many Australians and this rose is Australian bred.

Welcome to the club. There are Kordes roses all over the USA which have been gifted with names that are iconic from American popular culture. House of Kordes has a very clever marketing department it would seem.

For some reason, the North American catalogs and websites for 2015 are showing a photo of 'Grand Amore' and not Desmond Tutu.


From what I have seen both online and in-person, Desmond does not have exhibition-style form. Someone correct me if they feel I am wrong.

So, buyer beware. From what I can tell, there has been a photo mix-up! 2 red roses from the same breeder, but different style of plant and blooms.
