"Arcata Pink Globe" rose References
Article (newsletter) (Jul 2012)
It has been disappointing that during the past few decades of old rose gathering from waysides in the U.S. only one Setigera hybrid has been uncovered. Yet it is a rose of such exceptional beauty, that we ought to be very pleased. The rose which I stumbled across at an old house on the North Coast of California, has been found as well at a site in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. My foundling is named for the town in which I found it, and for the colour and form of the blooms; Arcata Pink Globe. It’s doppelgänger from the Gold Country is known as the Moser House Shed Rose. The flowers come in great abundance, late in the season, are medium-sized, and coloured blush pink with a lilac tint. It is sweetly scented.

"Arcata Pink Globe" Rambler. Fair Rebloom. Outstanding fragrance. Lax and trailing. Unknown, found. Discovered in Arcata, California, a globular, blush-pink rose with long, rambling canes. I had thought this to be a climbing old Noisette type like Aimee Vibert Scandens, but now believe this to be a Rambler, perhaps an old Setigera hybrid.
