Rose Listing Omission

"Floral City Ann"

Floral City Ann is a found rose, from Floral City, Florida. The blooms have a very strong fragrance. It has had no care other than being cut back on occasion and showed no sign of disease. The plant was growing at a height of about 6' and about 5' in width. She blooms in flushes.

Approximate class? Colour? Single, double, very double? Any idea of how long the bush has been there? As much information as the bush will tell you please drogers.

We recently acquired this rose and will be propagating it this summer. Our hope is that we will be able to offer it this fall (2017). It has a wonderful fragrance and is named for a generous individual.

The registration name is shown as Jadis in Modern Roses 12.

That is an error. Jackson & Perlins' Registration names have to start with JAC... We have 'Jadis' as a synonym.

Is this the same variety as Morgan's Spring ?

Hi. I had not heard of Morgan's Spring until I saw this post. I don't see that HMF has a listing for it either although I did see the rose offered from a couple of online nurseries. I grow Natchitoches Noisette and it's one of my favorite roses. It is a found rose, reportedly from an old cemetery in Natchitoches Louisiana. Is there any history as to Morgan's Spring's origins?

Pam Greenewald of Angel Gardens advises us:
"I received my Mother plant years ago when I first started growing (over 10 years ago) from a local nursery. I know it is a "found" rose and after growing both for many years, there is no question in my mind that it is the exact same rose as Natchitoches Noisette. Hope that helps."

It certainly does. Thanks Pam and drogers. We'll add it as a synonym.

Thank you so much, Patricia, Pam and DRogers!! I have grown NN for 3 years and it is also one of my favorites (Tacoma, WA, Zone 8b). Yesterday I received Morgan's Spring from Pam and was anxious to post it and read about it but couldn't find it. Thank you all for clearing up the mystery. Always fun to grow found roses that come from different sources. My NN was from Gregg Lowery. Patricia, you're very efficient and so quick to respond!!
