VINTAGE GARDENS NOTES: Seemingly a deriviative of ‘Mutabilis’, this rose produces flowers of deep cerise on a spreading bush. Though the origin of this is shrouded in mystery, it resembles what we would expect an primitive or perhaps a wild China rose to be.
Per Gregg Lowery, this rose was found growing, un-labelled and unidentified, at the San Jose Heritage Rose Garden
