Please could you open a page for 'Rose of Life', introduced by F.G. Cazzaniga (Vimodrone, Milano, Italy) c. 1965? It was adjudged 'Rose of the Year' and awarded a gold medal in the trials run at Monza by the Associazione Italiana della Rosa in 1965. It is a scarlet or orange-red Hybrid Tea. Details on p.113 of Annuario della Rosa 1966, which also has a picture of it. No mention of height, health or scent.

‘Rose of Life’ may be a synonym of ‘Amica’. Can you compare the photos and let us know if we should add the synonym. Thanks Charles.

Though not my favourite rose, I think it unfair to state 'occasional repeat later in the season'. In my experience, it is almost continually in flower.

Meilland's catalogue puts the year of introduction as 2011.

Thanks again. I had two choices: Meilland et Cie or Meilland International. I have chosen Meilland International, but let me know if this is incorrect.
