Although we were never able to carry out a specific hybridising programme, we were successful with a few seedlings, some by chance and some by intent. One of the nicest was Alice Maude (see photograph facing page), a lovely anemone centred purplish Rugosa named after my mother.

Alice Maude Raised by Griffiths. Parentage 'Roseraie de l'Hay' x seedling. Introduced 1985. Type Rugosa Hybrid. Size 1.5m. From time to time a rose grower has a variety cross his line of sight and because he has been responsible for the creation he may wish to call it after his mother. This is what happened in this case. The flower of this beautiful variety is the same colour as one of its parents 'Roseraie de l'Hay' but it has a lovely anemone centre with many petals and stamens showing. It is nicely fragrant.
