'Ann Turner'. Described by Ken Nobbs in his registration paper in 1984 as lavender pink, 'Ann Turner' is another rambler from 'Thornfree Wonder' and 'Veilchenblau'. It is 100% thorn free with a little tendency to mildew but has the benefit of being highly fragrant. With over 20 blooms per cluster and many petals per bloom, it would be a lovely sight rambling over fences and up trees. We had thought that it was another lost rose, but a small plant was found growing at Kauri Creek Nursery. 'Ann Turner' is protected for now, but not yet available commercially. It has also been called 'Mrs. Nathaniel Turner'.
