What year is this rose Pink Summer Snow?

Also, if I have a photo of a rose for Identification, do you have a spot for identifying roses?

Yes. Good question.
I have also wondered about the date and my file notes are:

1906 Tausendschon

1936 Summer Snow Cl. Climbing white Floribunda. 1936. Couteau, France. Seedling of Tausendschon. Spring only, with rare repeats. A pillar rose 8’ high. [see Stephen Scanniello Climbing Roses p143]

1938. Summer Snow white Polyantha or floribunda. . 1838. C. H. Perkins. sport of Summer Snow Cl. Remontant. [see Stephen Scanniello Climbing Roses p143]

19?? There is a Pink Summer Snow listed in Helpmefind at Gabriella’s Garden, Fort Myer, USA, garden. This may or may not be the climber.

1987 Pink summer Snow Cl. – Hannemann, Australia. - Peter Cox is not clear on the parentage of this but I presume it is a sport of the 1936 Summer Snow Climbing.

Thank you so much for the quick response. I am the person who takes care of the Mable Ringling Rose Garden in Sarasota, Florida. I am new at this, only been involved with roses for 2 years, and am trying to identify the unlabeled roses here at the garden. We have approximately 1570 roses, including the test roses which have not been named, but 120 of them were unlabeled. I now have it down to appr 10 iffy ones that I would love to have officially identified and have been really using this site. I love it. I would love to add some photos also and have a few, but sometimes it is difficult from my computer. Most of my unidentified are OGR's.

Thanks again,

Hi, Loretta,
HMF offers (for free, no less) a couple of valuable functions that you might find useful. First and foremost, the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art Rose Garden should have a GARDEN listing. I realize that the Museum has a wonderful website, but a garden with so many roses deserves an accession list online for rose nuts like us. Take a look at one of our local California rose gardens for an idea. Be sure to check all the tabs - PLANTS GROWN, PHOTOS and EVENTS,

HMF will help you upload a list of roses that appear in the garden from a text file or spreadsheet. You can maintain the listing yourself and control the content. The plant list alone would be invaluable, but you can also upload photos of the garden and report garden events.

Second, HMF has a forum for identifying roses. The PLANT IDENTIFICATION forum allows you to describe your roses and to upload photos. You may have noticed the HMF users come from all over the globe besides the USA. The Ringling Rose Garden may harbor some real treasures, and it would be wonderful to have them identified or at least named for study purposes. Start at the PLANT IDENTIFICATION forum. In the "What is this?" Topic, select the POST NEW COMMENT OR QUESTION button. In the box, post your questions and observations about the rose you are trying to ID. Press the CONTINUE button, and look for the button for uploading pictures. A HELP menu with direct you along the way. As you know, shots of the blooms are only one step in the identification process. Bloom cycle, foliage, prickles, scent, disease issues and plant habit all assist others in identifying roses.

Looking forward to see photos of the garden.

Hi Cass?

I did put some photos of the Ringling Rose garden that I took if you check. The garden is in its summer look right now which is not its best by any means. But it is something that shows the unique wagon wheel design of the gardens. What do you think?

They are perfect. For a garden mid-summer, I see a lot a bloom and healthy plants! Thanks so much. Once you get a list of roses, let me know.

Thank you so much for this i nformation. I will gladly do my part in this after I return from vacation and have a chance to sit down to the computer. Right now I am preparing for being gone for two weeks. I love your website and it has helped me so much.
