Can someone explain to me the difference between Aunt Gerry and Lanvin, since Aunt Gerry is supposedly a sport? They look much the same to me.

There are now more references for 'Lanvin' and the main page has been updated to reflect the references. I hope this helps.

In Australia, we have nothing on 'Aunt Gerry', but if anyone can add a comment giving a full reference, we will be happy to add them to the file.

Hi Dianne, very often, you can't tell the difference between Aunt Gerry and Lanvin. I've had both. Aunt Jerry still grows at my sister's house. Personally, if you have one, you have the other. Just not THAT different, at least around Los Angeles.

Thanks, Kim. I grow both, but haven't yet seen them both blooming, so have been curious.

Outstanding yellow HT for our climate (Zone 9B). Capable of prodigious bloom production when well grown. Blooms borne singly and in giant clusters. The spring bloom in April tends to be light yellow with a bit of green, not very attractive in my way of thinking. In the summer and fall the blooms are a pure rich medium yellow. Form is generally good but the rose has a hard time competing with the modern exhibition lions. Outstanding plant with very good mildew resistance. Hard to find, my bush was propagated from a bloom obtained at the end of a local rose show.
