I'm wondering whether 'Mme. Charles' might be a possibility for the real identity of 'Miss Atwood'. Both are large bushes, virtually thornless and somewhat Safranoesque in flower shape and colour.

Can you post a scan of this litho?

I've uploaded it but the colour is a bit washed out, sorry a crappy scanner

Thank you very much. This is a possibility, need to check the references and the plant more closely. I have moved the picture to 'Souv. de Gabrielle Drevet', but made a note to 'Miss Atwood'.

"miss atwood" resembles to old descriptions and illustrations of 'dr.grill' - could this be an option?

The blooms are similar; but Miss Atwood has no prickles, while the european Dr. Grill has prickles.

do you see other differences between them?
Reply #3 of 4 posted 19 AUG 09 by jedmar
Yes, while the blooms are similar, those of Miss Atwood are lighter in colour, aging from yellwoish pink to cream; while Dr. Grill has stronger orange-apricot tones. Its buds are also deeper pink. Colour range and form of foliage is similar, equally the stipules. Both have small, sharp, hooked prickles on the underside of rachis. The really evident difference in our plants are the prickles on Dr. Grill's canes.

might this be effected by the rootstock of dr.grill/loubert?

does mrs atwood thrive prickles and loose them when aging?
