Breeder's notes:
Per "official Sequoia documentation" the seed parent of this rose is Mr. Moore's 1-72-1. The listing here is not in error, it just lists the cross instead of the specific rose. Kim Rupert
Sequoia Nursery says this rose is a vigorous low climber that produces very double red and white striped flowers...
