I am trying to locate a 'Golden State' rose to purchase or a cutting to start. Our park, the California Nursery Historical Park, is the last 20 acres of the California Nursery Company in Niles California (now a district of Fremont). The CNCo helped introduce the 'Golden State' as the official rose of the 1930-40 Golden Gate International Exposition on Treasure Island in San Francisco. We are coming up on the 80th year since the world's fair. I have not been able to obtain this rose. I have checked the Santa Rosa garden listed in HMF. And I assume that Cliff's is no longer. Does anyone have this rose? I am checking with the Portland Rose Garden, but haven't heard from them yet.
I just posted some pictures in the "photos" for 'Golden State'. (I'm not sure this was an appropriate kind of photo to post.)

I'm desperately trying to replace a Sam McGredy rose 'Ginger Rogers' aka known as 'Salmon Charm' or 'Flower Show'. I note from information shown on this site that it is still commercially available but it doesn't say from where. Does anyone know where I might be able to source one from? I'm located in the UK and the 'Ginger Rogers' that I'm hoping to replace and which succumbed to old age, or my poor care, was originally bought in the early 1970s by my late father and it was his pride and joy. Is there anyone out who can help me ? I do hope so.

If you go into BUY FROM (top right) in the 'Ginger Rogers' page, you will see that it is commercially available in both Canada and Australia. Highlight your question to copy it, and place it in the 'Ginger Rogers' page comments. That way, perhaps in the future someone who knows it or grows it in Europe may contact you. Your question is a bit lost where it is now.

Question for any HMFers you may have purchased the Welcome Home yellow hybrid tea rose from Jackson & Perkins. While my rose hasn't yet fully bloomed, the buds appear red to pink. Has anyone else out there with Welcome Home experienced something similarly odd (i.e., a supposedly yellow rose having red to pink buds)? I'm suspect that J&P may have shipped me the wrong rose !

Thanks for any insight anyone can provide.

It is not so unusual for yellow or white roses to show a dark colour when in bud, 'Peace' for example does this.

Thanks very much Andrew.

I'll remain patient and see if the bloom opens to a color shade more expected.

Does anyone else have the Mrs. Herbert Stevens from Rogue Valley Roses? Mine doesn't seem to be the right rose. OOppss, it is the right rose, although, the first few blossoms were not white. They are now and I am very pleased with the rose
