I am searching for a Ruth Alexander climbing rose in the hope of obtaining a cutting for a friend who lives in West Vancouver and who grew this rose for approximately fifty years in her garden. Unfortunately, after she moved, the purchaser of her home took out the rose before my friend could obtain a cutting. Seeing your photo posted on the HelpFindMe website I wondered if you have this rose in your garden or alternatively, if you know the homeowner where the photo was taken. The rose is no longer available commercially (hybridized in the 1930's).
I appreciate that this is a rather unusual request but any help would be wonderful.

Many thanks for your kind consideration regarding this rose.

All the open flowers on this bush have very visible yellow stamens, yet none of the other photographs, from 5 other people, and an illustration has this

This plant was clearly labeled in one of the two municipal rose gardens in Baden-Baden. The label appears on the photo. I can see yellow stamens on at least one of the other photos. This photo was taken whilst attending the 2013 WFRS Rose trial judging event, I very much doubt that the municipal gardens in Baden-Baden would be in error especially as it is the location of the German Rose Society.

Doesn't look like 'Mélanie Soupert'.

Hi Behcet

I suggest that you contact Daphne Whitfort-Smith . Daphne is involved with the New Zealand group that has accumulated a list of rare and unknown 'found' roses in New Zealand. They have identified it as Melanie Soubert . I suggest that you giver her some information on yourself
. She is one of the world experts on species roses and is responsible for the species rose collection in Timaru Botanical Garden.

Hi David, Yes I looked at all pictures, and we have several from the period - 'Mélanie Soupert' is light yellow with pink highlights and double. This Climbing Rose looks more like 'Souvenir de Malmaison Clg' with a whiff of apricot.
