The American Rose Annual 1920. "The Story of the Baby Ramblers", by F. L. Mulford. p.59

"Tip-Top is one of the handsomest of the Baby Ramblers; its blooms are rather large, the petals beautifully crimped and white, with a broad margin of clear pink. It is not as floriferous as many others, and its growth relatively weak, not attaining a height of more than about eighteen inches. The foliage is also small, which helps give the plant and undernourished appearance.

Aha - that much sought after under-nourished appearance. I seek it too. (grin).
Thanks Nastarana. Reference added.

Currently grow a three foot tall bush in pot......continuous bloom and totally healthy. Have seen a four foot plant in a cemetery at a German grave ....... before identified nicknamed it after a gravestone, "Olga's Rose". It has the most interesting of parentages...........Trier (used to create much of the line of Hybrid Musks) crossed to a seedling of Austrian Copper (hence yellow color). Instead of a Polyantha this could be considered a pygmy Hybrid Musk.

Actually this unique rose is three colors. The reverse of petals is deep yellow. The inside of petals is white with a Tyrian rose edge. Found in 1989 in the Victoria Texas Evergreen Cemetary (no longer there) and shared amongst many of the Texas Rose Rustlers.
