Bearing in mind the pollen parent was a HT...... I doubt it too. Now listed as HP only.

Merveille de Lyon, the seed parent, is technically HT too, with Safrano as a parent. Maybe some wayward bees.

Going to applaud the HP classification. Here in Florida this plant is once blooming, spring only. Gives some stunning, big, clear clean white blossoms for about 2 weeks and that is that. Might toss me one lone bloom around September.

High Country Roses is offering a moss rose under this name. The picture on their website does show quite attractive mossing. It is a foundling they think they have correctly IDed.

I always wonder how someone can ID a rose which has not been in gardens or nurseries for over 150 years. For all purposes 'Bérenger' should be considered extinct.

I am afraid I can't answer that. The foundling, whatever it might be, does look charming. I might like to grow it. What surprises me is that Fairmount Cemetery, where a number of unnamed roses seem to have been found, kept no records of cultivars.

'New Dawn' is a rose I have selected--due to its color, significance of name, and the fact that it probably would have been available to the lay gardener in the early 1950's--to be included in a story I am writing. For Zone 7 in Alabama, does anyone know where this rose could have been purchased? (I am guessing through a mail-order catalog.) Also, I am looking for a popular public place (i.e. famous rose garden) in the south or on the east coast where it might have been grown and available for viewing. I need to be historically accurate, and I would appreciate any information. Thank you.

Roy Hennessey in Scappoose, Oregon carried 'New Dawn' in his 1954-55 catalogue and he used to ship by mail order. Actually you could write a whole book about Roy and his catalogues.

Wasn't Hennessey great ? I would have loved to have known him.

There are several tabs at the top of each rose page. You might want to look at the REFERENCES tab, the COMMENTS tab, the GARDENS tab and, of course, the BUY FROM tab. There is a wealth of good information under those tabs.

new dawn is the first patented horticulture in the u.s. it was found as a sport of"Dr VanFleet" in a Connecticut nursery inthe earlier part of the century,i believe. I do not know where in ct. but i have planted it, calling this grandlady, the "Connecticut Rose."

Biltmore House has rose gardens now. I have the impression that these always existed even if in a smaller form. You could check this.
