Had to dig to find a reference to Kerio. A google search indicates it's a widely grown 'brand' . Any idea why it wouldn't feature on helpmefind?

We add florists' roses not regularly, only on an exceptional basis. There must be hundreds, if not thousands of brands existing, which are not available to the general public except via florists. Information about these is more difficult to come bye if one is not in the trade and follows trade publications.
'Kerio' (LEXoirek) seems to be a cultivar of Lex Voorn, which we have now added. It does not seem to be available at any retail nurseries. You are welcome to add your photos.

Thank you for that reply. I'd seen it growing in one of my favourite Russian gardens, ( on YouTube ).
What struck me was the depth of colour and the perfect compact form. My wife will always choose yellow for the garden buts surprisingly difficult to find a rose with such a perfect form and colour. And of course it would have to be fragrant . Still don't know if it is fragrant I haven't found a single review that mentions the fragrance. But it's all moot now I suppose, I'm in Ireland and we're behind the Iron Curtain of the Brexit fiasco, no more roses without smuggling them ????, and I'm not kidding.
Thanks again

In the link on the page of 'Kerio' you will find mention of light fragrance of honey and lemon balm.

It is interesting that a lot of florist roses eventually find their way on the retail market and they seem to do well, especially in the warmer climates. As an example many of the Kordes Freelander Florist Roses are available to the general public.
