The Recent Horvath Climbers
R. E. Shepherd, Medina, Ohio
Jean Lafitte, a vigorous Climber producing many ten- to twelve-foot canes, is a cross of a Setigera seedling and the Hybrid Tea, Willowmere. It might be considered a perfect cross as the vigor and hardiness of Setigera have been combined with the color, form and fragrance of Willowmere. Only the everblooming characters of the latter have been lost. No other rose, with the possible exception of Dr. W. Van Fleet, offers more with a minimum of care, and Jean Lafitte is far easier to keep within bounds than is Van Fleet.

J&P doesn't seem to list this on their website. Does anyone in the US even have this one in a garden? Seems kind of wrong that it should disappear from it's mother's homeland...
