Alister Clark was talking of 'Cicely O'Rorke' in October, 1926. It was released 11 years later in 1937.
Proceeds from the sale of this rose were donated to the National Rose Society of Victoria.
'Cicely O'Rorke' resurfaced in an Australian nursery in 2000, but it is not clear who had been conserving the rose.
