Keith Laver (d. February 17, 2010), Caledon East, Ontario
Code is LAV--
Keith Laver bred several series of roses, including the Potluck and Springwood series.
In the Newsletter of the Societe des roses du Quebec Rose Society, December 2000 / February 2001, p. 15, Mr. Laver (Canadian rose hybridizer and owner of Springwood Roses) wrote: It has been four years since we stopped hybridizing roses. Ever since then we have kept a stock of our introductions and have kept our greenhouses in production, mainly in 4" pots for the garden centre trade. Some seven years ago we sold our miniature rose mail order business to Mori Miniatures but last year they ceased operations leaving a void in the introduction and distribution of Canadian hybridized miniature roses.
Keith Laver passed away on February 17, 2010.
