Rose Listing Omission

Dorothie

I found this in the 1901 catalogue of 'Childs' Rare Flowers, Vegetables and Fruit.' page 35

"New Rose, Dorothie. One of the most beautiful of Roses. Color hard to describe, but perfection in tint. It is a sport from Perle des Jardins, and is a lovely mingling of pink and tawny buff. A warm lovely color, but lacking the coppery red found in Sunset. A very distinct and valuable variety. The finest of the Perle family. Foliage as handsome as the flower. With us it has proved to be an extra free bloomer, and we regard it as one of the very finest of Tea Roses. 30c each; 2 for 50c; 5 for $1.00."

There is an engraving of the flower accompanying the description.

Dear all,

This is a summary of the message I received from KORDES ROSEN, regarding HT ‘Isabel de Ortíz’ (Reimer Kordes, Germany, 1962).

“Isabel de Ortiz is the beautiful family member of the head gardener Ramón Ortiz Ferré, who takes care of the urban facilities such as the Parque del Oeste in Madrid with effort and much enthusiasm.
That is why it was the desire of the leading circles in the International Competition for New Roses of the City of Madrid (CONCURSO INTERNACIONAL ROSAS NUEVAS VILLA DE MADRID) that she should be godmother for this new breed.”

Regards.

Thank you Mariano. I just can’t bring myself to add this “godmother” tripe, but have added the basic details of who the lady was to the main page.

Does anyone know anything about this foundling? Who found it, who named it, in what part of the world was it discovered, and why is it a "False Bon Silène"?

Thanks,
Virginia

The San Jose 2005 catalogue lists it at site K-12-20 with the notation [= Mrs. B. R. Cant?]

It may not surprise you to learn that I came across this listing because I found a reference to 'Minnie Francis' that called her an "improved 'Bon Silène'". So I was looking to remind myself of what 'Bon Silène' looked like, and stumbled across this foundling.

So many (too many) pink Teas to choose from...

Thanks for the info,
Virginia
