Looks like Remember Me is somewhere in the background of this rose!

I know the breeder uses/used a lot of Singin' in the Rain and Remember Me in their breeding, so it wouldn't be too far of a leap to say this one is likely related to both.

It's almost a look-alike of Rhosyn Margaret Williams. Same parentage?

Possibly, yeah. I could tell you more, but the business I ordered this from this spring sent me..... Easy Does It. They also sent me a dead 'Claret', but promised to replace it next year *sigh*

Helpful, lol.

Don't worry, HMF! Not naming names!

Finally growing this rose. It's not much of a floribunda. Similar dimensions to my Gold Struck, so far. So grandiflora size for North America.

Looks like it is bred from Belle Epoque, which is blooming 10' away from Ann Henderson in my garden. Very similar plant traits. AH is much deeper in color and tighter in the bud, and only somewhat smaller blooms.

Edit: August 2020: I will probably end up culling this rose. It gets powdery mildew, which is fairly uncommon in modern roses. At first I thought it was immaturity in the plant, but now thats its mature it's not improving. It still blooms and grows fine, but the foliage looks terrible.

If I had to do this all over again, I would have either just got a 2nd 'Remember Me', or bought either 'Tuscan Sun' or 'Singing in the Rain' and put up with the minor BS.

Another flaw with this rose is the base of the petals are thin, so the petals contort a lot, which can be appealing in some roses, but not in a formal floribunda.
