Eric Timewell. Frank Riethmuller’s Niece Elsie: ‘Amore’ and …. were probably lost because no one knew of them. In Elsie’s own words: [from Let’s Not Forget the Oldies, The NSW Rose, Autumn, 1968, p14] Some of the older [garden] varieties have proved to be hardy and seldom without blooms. I feel we do not see enough of them grown, and really good roses could pass into oblivion because new gardeners have neither seen nor heard of them.

Amore. Cluster-flowered floribunda. Medium pink. Repeat flowering. This trouble-free small shrub has good dark green foliage and deep pink flowers with petals deeper pink on the outside than the inside. These appear in clusters freely through summer and autumn. The growth habit is medium and has a spreading tendency. ‘Amore’ is excellent as a shrub in a mixed border or among small shrubs and perennials. There is no scent. This variety and others such as ‘Cara Bella’, ‘Gay Vista’ and ‘Honey Flow’ were bred from ‘Spring Song’ by Frank Riethmuller of Sydney; they could easily be classed with ‘Lavender Lassie’ and ‘Ballerina’. All are superb plants for landscaping. Zones 5-11. Riethmuller, Australia 1957. Orange Triumph’ x ‘Spring Song’.
