I knew Toni Tichy well; her plant of it CONSUMED her home, and even reached over to a neighbor's rooftop. VERY thick woody canes and a very heavy setter of HUGE hips whose seeds germinated readily. Cheryl Netter in Denver also had a magnificent plant of it. When I lived at 1684 Willow Street in NE Denver I planted one in my west bed fairly close to a plant of 'Doubloons' as after many years of obsessively researching "Mr. Nash" I over and over concluded it was very likely 'Doubloons'. "Mr. Nash" was incredibly cold hardy in Denver, which early in my research made me think it might have been a Brownell climber. Two died in my Tampa yard years ago, but I may buy a third to try here in a Water Wise Container Garden as that approach is affording me great success with several other roses from Denver, plus own root roses in general after 6 years of drought here.

I have verified that I have a new sport on my Gold Medal. Could you walk me through the steps of getting it reproduced and distributed?
Thank you,

Perhaps try to root multiple cuttings of it to grow and study, choose a name and check at HMF to see if that name is taken, then join IRARS and register it. Good luck! John

After years of seeking aid trying to establish an ID for the rampant thornless remontant Florida Mystery Rose "Barfield White Climber" I now feel that this rose may be in fact be it! I stumbled on this notion while thumbing through Mike Shoup's rose book on the way back to Tampa from giving my talk on pro-biotic rose growing at his 2008 Fall Festival. "Barfield" is 99.9% prickle free here in Tampa own root.....I'd love to know if Aimee is too! Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

I grew 'Aimee Vibert'. In my opinion they are not the same.

In 2001, when I was staying at Bill Grant's home in Aptos, Mel came all the way to give me a plant of Rosa manettii he had propagated for me to take back to Denver to compare to "Mae Fair Pink" at Fairmount Cemetery, then to plant in my Tampa yard for testing...that generous act confirmed Kim Rupert's hunch as to the ID of "Mae Fair Pink" which had stumped many excellent rosarians.

And of course, when Bill took to me to SHHRG, in FULL PEAK bloom with an occasional plane landing overhead, I was blown away by the immensity and diversity of it all. I forget the name of it, but that one found seedling that Mel was very fond of, was absolutely spectacular where it grew in back near a shed as I recall. His dedication to that garden was obvious.

Sadly, I never got to experience his famed margarita get-togethers. I can see why those who knew him well will miss him badly.
