The Association of German Nurserymen organizes a competition to select roses likely to withstand different climatic conditions within the country. Each chosen rose is labelled 'Anerkannte Deutcher Rose' (ADR) and can be expected to enjoy a long commercial run... 'Aachener Dom' is one of the roses chosen.

Description. Before this obviously promising rose had been named, nurserymen called it 'Alec's red one', so 'Alec's Red' it stayed. Bred from 'Fragrant Cloud' and 'Dame de Coeur', 'Alec's Red' has glorious fragrance from the one and a strong constitution from the other. These qualities helped to secure it an unprecedented 'double' -- the prize for Most Fragrant Rose in 1969 and the President's International Trophy as Best New Rose in 1970.

('Alexandra') Description. Jack Harkness named this rose for Field Marshall Earl Alexander of Tunis, under whom he served in World War II… For cutting, 'Alexander' is excellent, but it needs the right treatment. Cut the buds young, before the outer petals separate: if left on the plant too long, they will fly open and lose colour.

Alexander was bred from Super Star. It grows half as tall again, without the mildew; the brightest in this colour, it makes 'Super Star' look pink...

(HARroony) Description. Looking a winner from the day the first flower opened, this was at first going to be named 'Rosemary Harkness'; 'Amber Queen' was eventually preferred because of the rose's international appeal… voted Rose of the Year for 1984.
