Australian bred R. gigantea Hybrids. A review as at October 2006 by Laurie Newman (Australian registrar). The findings below are based on research of some of the writings of Alister Clark between 1924 and 1942. There are anomalies contained in the papers, but on balance I believe the list to be conclusive.
Firstly, there are the three listed in American Rose (Sept, 2006, page 9, namely,
Courier (MR11 LCl.)
Kitty Kininmonth (MR11 LCl.) and
Tonner’s Fancy (MR11 LCl.)
Add …Lorraine Lee Sports:
Baxter Beauty (MR11 HT) ....
……My thanks are expressed to American Rose Society for inviting me to submit to the revised Gigantea Hybrid classification.

Ross Heathcote. A Theory of Pruning. Lorraine Lee was the most mildew prone rose in my former garden. In my current garden I have its sport, Baxter Beauty, which is of shrub size – 2m tall by 1.3m diameter. It has remained completely mildew free with branches going in all directions, filling up the centre, and with not the slightest semblance of a ‘vase’ shape.
