Notes:
See references. A rose labeled as Lady Curzon was checked and found to be diploid on January 1, 2011. The ploidy was rechecked 2 weeks later, with the same result. Since two earlier sources have claimed that Lady Curzon is triploid, positive identification of this recent diploid rose will be necessary.
