The Makers of Heavenly Roses
(1985)  Page(s) 156.  
 
[Alec Cocker's] first big success was 'Alec's Red', a cherry red Hybrid Tea with large blooms and rich fragrance. It won the Royal National Rose Society's highest award for a new rose, the President's International Trophy, in 1970, the year of its introduction. [also the story of how this rose got its name.]
(1985)  Page(s) 164, 166.  
 
p. 164: Two seedlings from that first year's [1962] work were to give me some fine roses in the future; one was 'Anne Elizabeth' x 'Allgold'; the other 'Orange Sensation' x 'Allgold'. They were never introduced, because they were not in their own right marketable varieties. I called them 'half-way houses'. The influence of both is well marked in our breeding to this day.

p. 166: Among my varieties some of the best known are 'Alexander', 'Compassion', 'Mountbatten', 'Yesterday', 'Elizabeth Harkness', 'Southampton' and 'Amber Queen'.

Anne Cocker was introduced in 1971, a tall Floribunda with bright little, tight little, vermilion flowers, very long lasting when cut and put in a vase.
