Trewallyn are no longer listing this rose (I have checked their complete catalogue, as well as their list of roses for sale on this site).

If going to Green E Roses, best to call first, their site catalogue isn't the most frequently updated source of info. Which isn't a diss in any way, their business is more in person than online. I'm just usually there a couple times a year and know there's often things there that aren't listed on their site and some things on their site that aren't there.

I did see it there pre covid though (haven't been there since) so probably do have it, but still call first.

Green Rose,
This rose, as grown at the Heritage Rose Garden & my yard (both in San Jose, CA) produces flowers with a pleasing spicy scent as opposed to the listing here that says "No Fragrance"

Margery Fish, A Flower For Every Day. Published by The Garden Book Club, 121 Charring Cross Road, London W.C.2.

Mrs Fish's garden East Lambrook Manor is in Somerset in the south-west of England.

I know not everyone shares my love for the green China roses, R. viridiflora. People who enjoy most green flowers are quite rude about it, and say it isn't like a rose at all. It is queer, I agree, and never quite as wonderful as I think it is going to be, but I enjoy its harmony of dull green and faded crimson and would always want it in the garden. Sometimes it has a very late flowering which it would be wise to do often for without the competition of other flowers, we realise it is beautiful as well as being queer.

I've never found Viridiflora that appealing, at least not in pictures, but a friend of mine is a florist and she would commit murder to get her hands on a reliable supply.

To be fair I can see it being a useful accent in some floral arrangements, but I'm still not convinced it's a worthy garden shrub. I may end up growing some anyway, just as a favour, or giving her one for Christmas.

It's so very different to anything else, odd and strange plants have an appeal to me. I don't find it in the least attractive!
