There appears to be confusion over I Zingari (the Pemberton Hybrid Tea) and a rose that is often mistaken for it and clearly is a different rose. Though the latter is, or was, found in the Pemberton Collection and in Europe, it is not his.

Feel the non Pemberton one, which the orgins are unclear, should be reclassified as 'The I Zingari Nomadic Rose' as both roses share the name of the nomadic cricket club.

The American Rose Annual (1927) p. 134

I Zingari. HT. (Pemberton, 1925.) A. R. A., 1926. Do not see why it should be called a Hybrid Lutea or a Hybrid Foetida; it is exactly like all the other so-called Pernetianas which are really Hybrid Teas. Anyway, it won't be called anything long if it doesn't amount to any more than it did last season. -- Editorial.

I Zingari and Rising Sun are loose, semi-double varieties with coppery old-gold shades, but the first-mentioned loses its shape very quickly and is rather a ragged bloom when open. H. H. Hazelwood, Epping, New South Wales, Australia.

This rose grew in the Rose Hills Memorial Park rose garden where it had been planted by Mr. James Kirk, the rosarian at the garden for a number of years. He had been given the plant by Mr. Forest Hieatt, who was active in roses and rose societies in Southern California for many years. Mr. Hieatt is who bred the rose Flame of Love.

I was fortunate to be able to trade roses with Rose Hills for a short period. I Zingari is one I was able to collect cuttings of and reintroduce to commerce through Sequoia Nursery, Vintage Gardens and Ashdown Roses. It pleases me to see it remains in gardens and is still offered by a few nurseries.
