What about growing some of these old roses today? This is where the people of Heritage Roses can not only play a part in preserving some long lost beauty from becoming extinct but, most important, can make these roses available to breeders. Just to cite an example. Many years ago I had used a little red polyantha called 'Eblouissant' (Turbat, 1918) in my breeding. Out of these crosses came two roses which became important parents. I thought that 'Eblouissant' had long ago disappeared from the earth. Imagine my delight when a man called me from Canada to tell me that a friend had instructed him to send me two rooted cuttings of this rose. Now I plan to reintroduce 'Eblouissant' into the miniatures.
