Looking for descendant information on the early Alister Clark HT 'Sunny South' I remembered reading in the book "A Man of Roses. Alister Clarke of Glenara - and his Family" (T.J. Garnet) that Queen of Heart (not Queen of Hearts... not sure if it is a typo in the book or not???) was released in 1920 (not 1919) and the parentage is quoted as "Gigantea x Sunny South seed x Rosy Morn". Checked the page ref. (if someone wants to verify this), and it was from page 122.

Thank you Simon. Have you had a look at the references for ‘Queen of Hearts’? There are four Helpmefind pages of references and one of the 1920 ones says “issued last year”. Alister himself gives us the parentage of ‘Gustav Grunerwald’ x ‘Rosymorn’ in the 1928 reference. There is a mine of information in the Helpmefind references about most of the Alister Clark roses, far much more than in any other media I’ve seen.

Yes... thought you might like another... I don't know whether it is right or wrong. just passing on the reference.

Its wrong, and the parentage is underlined to alert you it is wrong. That reference has been there since September 2008. However, if you find another reference that we don’t have, we would be so happy to share it with all.
