Poulsens introduced this rose as Golden Cover and still list it under this name in their catalogue. But HMF says that its Exhibition name is Yellow Cover. Please can you explain what is meant by an 'Exhibition' name?

Thank you Charles. We have corrected the name it was introduced as to ‘Golden Cover’. If you can, we would always appreciate a substantiating reference.

You might redirect your question on the Exhibition name to the ARS (American Rose Society). I believe it is their term.

Please note that the date of introduction was 1922, not 1923.

I have uploaded a couple of pictures of this bright red rose which I believe to be correctly named.

Thank you Charles. Do you have any idea which ‘Lydia’?

No, I'm afraid not, though I assume it was Kordes 1973. Smith tended to use cvs that were widely available and I've never seen the Robinson cv.

I assumed it was the Kordes rose as well. Thank you for your help.
