It looks like UC Davis can sell cuttings of this rose now, but it has 3 years left on its patent. So if one were to get permission from Dickson, they could theoretically get cuttings from it. Or wait 3 years and ask UC Davis then.

Its really too bad. This was one of the most ridiculously easy HT roses I had ever grown.

This rose just won Queen in Portland (OR). I am sure the straight stems, with their pretty foliage, helped.

This rose is easy mode here. It is too bad that it is fading from commerce. Aperitif, its half-sister, is the same way, but in medium yellow.

Possibly the most elusive, least grown even at introduction AARS selection ever. Just a decade old, only 5 favproite votes. I never even saw it at release in the local garden centers. Talk about an appropriate name!

Its too bad, too. Anyone could grow this rose and have a lot of stems for the kitchen table. This rose, like its parent Elina, was born on easy mode. I grew it with ease, and I do not use chemicals whatsoever. It probably would have been super successful had it either been a few shades whiter or a few shades more apricot, like French Lace. Its in-between, which I like, but apparently is looked over.

The Montreal Botanical Garden recommends this rose as resistant to blackspot, powdery mildew, and rust:
