The Mini-Rose Garden
says Amber Star
is a sport of 'Glowing Amber' with blooms that open amber/orange on the inside with yellow at the base and a golden yellow reverse that becomes pink/cream when fully open... This rose has already been a show winner in the Pacific Northwest...
In an article entitled Discovery in the Rosebanks Newsletter, Jim Pazdzierski writes about discovering a sport in 'Glowing Amber': "I retained all rights in Canada under the registered name of 'Brittany's Glowing Star'. I offered George Mander all international rights, as he was the hybridizer of the parent plant and has a well-established international marketing network in place. Outside of Canada, he registered the rose as 'Amber Star'... I am grateful to those who supported me, especially George Mander."
