I wonder if this could be the presumed-lost 'Franz Deegen', parent of 'Gruss an Aachen'.......

Could be, but would it be perhaps too on the peach side of yellow to be Franz Deegan?
I've been trying to compare the photos of it to 'Mlle Helene Cambier'.

I could never go past ‘St. Helena’ (hybrid tea, Cant, 1912).
See also “Mrs. Frances Pickles”.

I just obtained a band of this rose this year from a Friends of Vintage Roses sale and I must say I am already struck by its resemblance to some photos of 'Mlle Helene Cambier'. As indicated by the images posted by HubertG in its photos, 'Mlle Helene Cambier' was for sale in the 1910s by the California Rose Company, which was located in the San Francisco Bay Area at the time and thus not that far from St. Helena, in Napa County. I am looking forward to becoming more familiar with this rose in future years and continuing to make comparisons.

Clicking on the photos gives no close-up of the photo, only a little blue box with a question mark in it --- since last night.

Working for me now, too -- ephemeral gremlin, I guess. Thanks!

'Ephemeral Gremlin' would be a great name for a rose. :)

Or pop group, or video game, or collection of verse. Etc.

I've grown roses that COULD have been called that, would have been apt. :-) Not the "Comtesse de Rocquigny' here, though -- a lovely, lovely rose. Our only issue is that she maybe wants to be a pillar or a very large shrub (8' cane the first year in the ground, then more long canes this second year), where I was just thinking "shrub". But, I'm in love, so whatever she wants.

The photo "gremlin" is back, though, for me. Right now, the newest photos (first page) for this rose load fine, but older photos on subsequent pages won't enlarge when clicked on -- just gives a blue question box and the photo's id number on the left + caption in small print on the right at the top of the page and nothing else. Not happening with other rose varieties I just looked up and tried, only this one, and same thing happens in different browsers.

There are no photos of any rose on the site. There seems to be a problem....

HMF experienced a technical issue centered around the display of photos. The issue has been resolved.
