The name changing of roses is currently causing a good deal of concern to quite a few people including ourselves. We have always tried to stay with the name the hybridiser gives the new rose, although translations from one language to another have not bothered us. 'Mona Lisa' has been changed to 'Australian Gold'.

Mattock exhibited a number of 1980 introductions....from Kordes. These included the Floribundas 'Australian Gold', a lovely peach colour with dark shiny leaves, named for the Australian Fruit Canning industry.

Mona Lisa (Kordes): Floribunda, with some claims to being of hybrid tea type. A beautiful colour and very free flowering, with lovely tinted foliage. Creamy apricot flushed with orange, pink, and gold. We cannot think of another floribunda in these beautiful colours.
