Is the parentage of this rose lost, undisclosed, or just not known by HMF?

Not known at the moment.
There is also a mixup between 'Buffalo Gal' and 'Pierette' and their code names. I can't quite work those out just yet. If anyone else can help?

Eight years on, it seems to me as if UHLwe (Pierette) and UHLater (Buffalo Gal) are the same rose?

If there are two distinct breeder codes, they are not the same. They received ADR awards in different years. I believe the ARS has a confusion in its data base. Will check German sources.

I've ordered from Roses Unlimited on several occasions, and all plants (save a variety which I think was incorrectly passing for 'Omar Khayyam') were labeled correctly, in good health, and packaged securely. They have an excellent selection, and ordering via email is speedy and convenient. My orders were shipped promptly and arrived quite quickly-- I'd certainly recommend Roses Unlimited!

I second the comment about true to label and good health. The plants I received from RU could have been better packaged. Mind, this was a few years back, and overall I was a satisfied customer. I do find that roses grown in the American South do struggle a bit to acclimatize to the cold and damp soils in my yard.

A double pink, not the red or at least quite reddish tone of Slater's Crimson

Yes, foliage doesn't look like 'Old Blush' either

Rose Listing Omission

R. rugosa variegata

I saw a variegated form of R. rugosa in Trevor Griffith's Book of Classic Old Roses (1986); I don't know if this might already be listed on HMF under a different name-- I thought I might check into it. I took a photo from the book that I could post. It is a typical-looking single rugosa but with some leaf variegation.

I don’t think we did have it listed Sambolingo. So I have added it as ‘Variegata (rugosa, unknown, before 1986)’. Beyond looking in Trevor’s books, I haven’t searched for other references. (I’d spend half the day ploughing through all the other Variegatas). I can’t help thinking this might have been a R. Rugosa typica / Scabrosa type of rose with some sort of mineral deficiency like Magnesium.
