Could it be Dr. Huey:

No I don't think so. This season there are about three or four examples of 'Dr. Huey' announcing themselves in my garden. The bloom is smaller, it has a different petal shape and the stamens are heavier than "Mary Frith's Red Climber". But I do thank you for your suggestion Rosentrost.

The correct spelling is 'Ricordo ...' etc. I know this seems pedantic but when I tried at first looking it up on hmf I couldn't find it because I was spelling it correctly. I don't know how Jaeger's Rosenlexicon spells it; the GroenlooF site spells it with two "c" and, in consequence, at Sangerhausen the spelling error is repeated (as with all other varieties beginning with Ricordo.

Rosenlexikon spells it with cc, Sangerhausen and Groenloof follow J├Ąger. We can add 'Ricordo...' if there is a reference with one c only. Yes, correct spelling of the word is 'Ricordo' but we have to follow references, too.

I understand that, but at present hmf does not recognise the correct spelling at all - as if such a rose didn't exist. Sangerhausen lists several other roses whose names begin with the same word as 'Riccordo...' rather than 'Ricordo...'. The trouble is that such errors begin to have a life of their on; the result of this is that looking, for instance, for 'Ricordo de Giosue' Carducci' in the index you would conclude wrongly that they don't have it.

I can't read/speak any Italian either, but I see that Brent Dickerson (The Old Rose Adventurer, p447) notes:
Ricordo di Geo Chavez [Translation: "In Memory of Geo Chavez".]
Ricordo di Giosue Carducci ('Souvenir de Giosue Carducci') [Translation: "In Memory of Giosue Carducci".]

Might Recordo be something like.... a record... of the man?

Ricordo = memory = (in rose parlance) souvenir (Fr.) = Andenken (German)

I remember looking up emleke (sorry, can't do the accent on the middle e) because it occurs in the name of many Hungarian-bred roses. Google translate put it as Memories.

That is a sufficient base, I suppose. This semms to be the only rose where the "Ricordo" spelling was missing; so be it.
