Lovely color. I have purchased a "Harry Wheatcroft" in Vic. Australia. It seems to look more like this beauty. Not one stripe to be found on first years blooms! Is this a sport of "Harry Wheatcroft" on your site? Of course I am aware that my rose could more likely be mistagged but I was just wondering. If you could enlighten me on all "Picadilly" sports?

Your's must be mislabeled ! I will enlighten you about all "Picadilly" sports at a later time, as I am just too busy to look them up.

Hi Calif Sue,
Thank you for your compliments.
This rose is not yet available in the US. I am trying to get it to Ashdown Roses in S. Carolina this spring so they can propagate it. They now have the other sport 'George's Pride' and the 'Dr. Michael Noble' mini.
Select Roses in Langley B.C., 30 miles east of Vancouver, may have the first plants available this summer.

I have a few new smaller own root plants at home and may be able to have two for you if I am at home when you visit the Sunshine Coast. I may not be home for some time in the summer. (commitment to my wife Ingrid I made almost 7 years ago who is very ill)
Regards George Mander

PLease send me an e-mail at
