This file is for the un-named rose that emanated from Keith Money's garden in Norfolk.
L. Arthur Wyatt was the first to offer it commercially under the name 'Adam'. It was included in the 1969 - 1972 catalogue of Wyatt's small nursery enterprise, 'Lost and Found Roses'. After the untimely end of 'Lost and Found Roses' in 1975, Peter Beales took on the responsibility of propagating and distributing this and many other rare old roses and it has been distributed widely.
"Adam - in commerce as" has the appearance of a Dijon Tea and is likely to be a descendant of 'Gloire de Dijon'. 'Mme Bérard' has been suggested as a possible identification for "Adam - in commerce as" but further study is needed.
Prickles: New canes can carry prickles. Most are shed with maturity, leaving some branches thornless, and others sparsely armed.
Hips: a good seed bearer.
