Mr. Moore had been given Grandmother's Hat, and told it was a Bourbon Rose. He crossed it with his well used breeding rose, 1-72-1 to produce a test rose he called, "A New Bourbon". He shared this rose with me to test in my desert garden, and I began using it for breeding to see what the results would be. This is a self seedling I've kept from open pollinated hips I collected from my plant. It impresses me because of the importance of both parents. Both are quite shade tolerant. Both are heavy, continuous blooming plants in my climate and both have the potential for creating thornless roses which are very easily propagated.
