Beautiful blossom but not 'Dr. F.L. Skinner' which is pale yellow/buff.

Sorry to see that none of our knowledgeable North American rose friends has chimed in here so far. However, I now have confirmation from Sangerhausen: The rose 'Langford' had been listed wrongly for quite some time as 'Longford' (most possibly due to a typo). The wrong classification as Hybrid Helena is possibly in connection with a mistake in the 1970 edition of the printed Sangerhausen rose directory. Both plants grown at Sangerhausen are consistent with the description of the Hybrid Setigera named 'Langford'.

Yes, the information from Sangerhausen is correct and the "Longford" reference should be merged with "Langford". The rose was lost in Canada and only recently has been imported from Sangerhausen and is now grown in the Montreal Botanic Garden in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Thank you, Margit. It is good to hear that 'Langford' is grown again in Canada and this is one more instance for the importance of a rose collection like the Europa Rosarium Sangerhausen.

Merged. I think it is all correct now.

This rose seems to have very little connection with 'Stanwell Perpetual'.

Seems to be more like 'Single Cherry' to me.
Does anybody have any references for 'Red Stanwell Perpetual'?

When it does not look or behave like 'Stanwell Perpetual', I'm surprised it was given this name.

To my way of thinking the name implies the rose is a seedling of 'Stanwell Perpetual'. Len keeps excellent records and I am certain he will be able to get more information from the the source.
