Bishop's Lodge Rose Listing (29 Oct 2003)  
"Bishop's Lodge Sydney Linton" named for the first Bishop of Riverina, Sydney Linton. A tall, Hybrid Perpetual style of rose with very large, strong pink, cupped and scented. Recurrent. Initially identified as 'Paul Neyron', 1869 but recent research suggests that this is a different rose.

 "Sydney Linton". This rose was found growing at Bishop's Lodge at Hay, NSW, Australia....One feature that may be significant is that the outer petals and sepals are often fused, as seen here.

David Ruston. ....Brenda Weir] would never give a rose a name unless she was absolutely sure. When a number of experts visiting Hay put the name of 'Paul Neyron' to Bishop's Lodge Sydney Linton Brenda was sure it was not. Although the flowers are similar, the habit of growth is so different. 'Sydney Linton' is a huge grower with a massive spring blooming. I consider 'Sydney Linton' the greatest of all Hybrid Perpetuals, praise indeed. When Steve Scaniello was at the garden last November, he was sure it was 'American Beauty', the first cut flower variety grown by the millions in the USA under glass to decorate the bosoms of countless debutantes. We have sent lots of photographs to him, but so far no reply. I will try to get budwood from the USA to try the two roses together.

Sue Zwar.    We had another look around Bishop’s Lodge where we were amazed at how neatly the garden is kept – it looked nearly as good as it had been during the Rose Convention!  BL Sydney Linton still had a few flowers, not as big as the spring flush but stll quite beautiful and many of the [other] roses had plenty of colourful hips, especially the Alister Clarks.

p2.  Photo caption.    “Bishop’s Lodge Sydney Linton” is like ‘Paul Neyron’ on steroids.  Possibilities discussed have included a climbing form of ‘Paul Neyron’ and ‘American Beauty’.

p17.  Steve Beck.  Big is Beautiful.
Many think the Bishop’s Lodge rose “Sydney Linton” (ROR) could be ‘American Beauty’.

Steve Beck.  ….400mm of rain our region received in August has produced the best spring flowering I have ever seen from our roses.    And Sydney Linton managed blooms of almost 170mmn after spending nearly two weeks in August sitting in 150mm of water!!
