Re: Dr. E. M. Mills (a likely reference not currently posted on HMF)

"Rose-Breeding Notes for 1918," by Dr. Walter Van Fleet, 1919 ARA, p. 31 - "The first R. hugonis seedling containing Hybrid Tea blood has bloomed for three seasons and is interesting, if not beautiful. The pollen parent was most likely Radiance, and the large, double, pinkish yellow flowers afford strong resemblance to that excellent variety in form and fragrance. The plant is healthy, hardy, and has grown over four feet in height. It fruits sparingly and shows signs of a fair increase by suckers."

I recently asked help in deciding between Margo Koster and Boscobel roses. I'm so thankful to find this forum and I will tell you why. Before posing this ? on help me find, I had contacted a rosarian that was listed online. Her response was "simply choose a rose you like, it's trial and error and we learn from our mistakes". I needed some direction and I'm so thankful for the replies I got from this forum. You gave me details and bonefided experience. Your the real rosarians!

To help a little further, Charles and Brigid Quest-Ritson's book The Royal Horticultural Society Encyclopedia of Roses, page 119 has a very good entry on some of the Koster roses including 'Anneke Koster', 'Dick Koster', 'Margo Koster', 'Morsdag', 'Vatertag', 'Orange Morsdag'. They are mostly fairly similar, only a variation in colour.

I certainly will look it up, I've gotten so interested in Koster and I've googled all I can find. Thank you!
Update; This must be the motherlode encyclopedia on roses. I see it for sale (yikes) but don't think I can be privy to peek inside lol. Maybe somehow I can get access through a library. Worth a try, cause I know it's intriguing.

They bred some very good Rhododendrons too.
