[From McCann on Roses, The Rose (RNRS), Summer, 1994, by Sean McCann, p. 88:] Where is the person who will stand up and do a Harry Wheatcroft? If you are too young to remember Harry then I suggest you go back and talk to some old timers. Harry sold the rose, its beauty, its fragrance with a zeal that has never been matched. He adored it -- and he adored the part he was playing in it. He called it a love affair, one man's romance with the first lady of flowers. Whenever a newspaperman went hunting for a story at one of the big shows the first question would be "Where's Harry?"

???? - 1975.
[From The Ultimate Rose Book, by Stirling Macoboy, p. 211:] From his base in Nottingham, Harry Wheatcroft travelled the world seeking new roses to introduce to rose-lovers in the United Kingdom; he used often to misquote Thomas Gray: 'Full many a flower is born to blush unseen -- but not if I can help it!'
