Luck plays a big part in finding old roses. Recently I also had luck in finding an old rose at Yering Station in the Yarra Valley. This property was the site of the first vineyard in Victoria, in 1838....

"Not Mme. Hoste" ("Hay Valley Tea", "Nantawarra Pink Tea"). This apricot to carmine tea with similarities to 'Maman Cochet' was planted in the early 1900s at Gamble Cottage, Blackwood, South Australia, and later identified and sold as the pale yellow 'Mme. Hoste', which it clearly was not. 'Auguste Comte' (1895), which has the same parentage as 'Maman Cochet' is the likely identification for this rose.
