Initial post 6 DEC 15 by Patricia Routley
Are either of these words of Maori origin - Nauru and Ngauru?
Ngauru appeared in the early New Zealand references, but Nauru was registered. I have noted other odd spellings in the literature.

Am trying to sort out the oddities between
76/870. 'West Coast' MACnauru and (Red Planet x Arturo Toscanini)
75/483. 'Pink Charm' MACsatur. (Sunday x Ferry Porsche)
Both are pink HTs and both have been called 'Penthouse'.
Both have different parentages.

Later edit. See also
79/1125. Ngauruhoe (hybrid tea, McGredy 1979) (Marin County x Crisp)

If anyone has any references or advice on the Penthouse affair, I would be grateful.
