Notes:
Arena Rose Co.'s Catalog 2000 says Newport (aka 'Memory Bells', 'Waxwing') produces an abundance of old-fashioned blooms of medium pink... Parentage: Seedling x 'Rosenholm'...


Michael at Michael's Premier Roses describes this as an old garden rose look with 3-inch heavily petaled blooms...


The Roseraie at Bayfields says Waxwing is like a miniature 'English Miss' with clouds of little high-centered pink blooms...


According to Ludwigs Roses, Sean McCann was impressed with this rose when he saw it growing at their nursery and he suggested the name.
