I have added a reference which says "Laurel Hill" closely resembles 'Mrs. B. R. Cant'. There is a foundling in Australia which is also said to resemble 'Mrs. B. R. Cant' called "Sylvia Hannah's Dark Pink Tea" and there are photos in that file.

FWIW, I think 'Marie Ducher' is also supposed to closely resemble Mrs. B. R. Cant. See the comments section at her HMF record...

"SHDPT" is a lovely rose.

Thanks for that tip Virginia. I'll investigate 'Marie Ducher' and add refs as soon as I can (fingers are nearly down to the bone here) but on a quick glance, it certainly was widespread in Australia. Later edit - it seems there was possible confusion with the white/cream 'Ducher'. Somehow, "Sylvia Hannah's Dark Pink Tea" doesn't strike me as a Dijon tea but I could be wrong. I am currently leaving all hips on my "SHDPT" to compare with 'Mrs. B. R. Cant'.

I will respond further in 'Marie Ducher'
