Responding to Member Palustris' comment in a 'Debutante' photo.
"Several ways to ID the correct 'Dorothy Perkins' are
1. New foliage and growth is "bronze" in color initially; 'Lady Gay' never is.
2. Pedicels are devoid of any bristles; 'Lady Gay' has sparse and minute "bristles."

Thank you for that Palustris. I have added these points to the main page for 'Lady Gay'.

It may be of some interest the report by Arthur William Paul, presented in 1906 at the Third International Conference on Genetics, entitled ON THE DERIVATION OF SOME RECENT VARIETIES OF ROSES (see References). The parentage of Lady Gay reported by Paul is “a seedling from Crimson Rambler, other parent not stated”, different from “Wichuraiana and Bardou Job” reported by Mr. Henry Hentz, Jr. in Roses and how to grow them (1906).
