According to Texas Cooperative Extension, "Nacogdoches" was Found in Nacogdoches, Texas growing under an abandoned motel overhang. Six plants were grown in the garden of Tillie Jungman, near Castroville, Texas. Two of the plants were clearly superior to the other four, being more vigorous and disease-resistant. The roses was tested for disease resistance and suitability for growing in Texas and subsequently renamed "Grandma's Yellow" in honor of Miss Tillie, who died in 2005.
