Initial post yesterday by Ms.Lefty
Hello, HMF friends - I'm trying to identify the yellow climbing rose that is sold by Spring Hill Nursery under the name "Golden Opportunity." It's not the "Golden Opportunity" listed in HMF. This one is a climber by Tom Carruth, also called WEKAUSUJUCTON. Has anybody heard of it? Did Spring Hill simply rename it? Enquiring minds need to know.

Hope all you rosy people are safe and well. Remember, even if you're staying home to "flatten the curve," you can still garden in your backyard!

Added, but this is a tricky one. Is it a distinct species, or a synonym? Then there is also Rosa mexicana Willd. = Rose montezumae.

Thanks Jedmar,
I just learned that John Kunkel Small in North American Flora vol. 22 lists this as a synonym of Rosa serrulata Raf. Ann. Gén. Sci. Phys. 5: 218. 1820. I added the entry to R. serrulata references.

And W. H. Lewis has classed it as a dwarf subspecies of R. carolina in 2008!

I have a premium membership yet I am not allowed multiple criteria for searches. Not sure what I'm doing wrong but this is very frustrating.

You should be able to. Can you give an example?

I wonder about the registered spelling of ´Karl Förster', is it really the original spelling? It was named for the plantsman Karl Foerster of Bornim, Potsdam. Both father and daughter Foerster spelt with oe.

Member makida seems to be right. See: https://www.foerster-stauden.de/
But in an earlier comment for this rose (Discussion id : 72-041 12 JUN 13), Jedmar clarifies this issue.
