David Ruston. ....Brenda Weir] would never give a rose a name unless she was absolutely sure. When a number of experts visiting Hay put the name of 'Paul Neyron' to Bishop's Lodge Sydney Linton Brenda was sure it was not. Although the flowers are similar, the habit of growth is so different. 'Sydney Linton' is a huge grower with a massive spring blooming. I consider 'Sydney Linton' the greatest of all Hybrid Perpetuals, praise indeed. When Steve Scaniello was at the garden last November, he was sure it was 'American Beauty', the first cut flower variety grown by the millions in the USA under glass to decorate the bosoms of countless debutantes. We have sent lots of photographs to him, but so far no reply. I will try to get budwood from the USA to try the two roses together.
