HelpMeFind has four files – which may all be the same rose:
“Cemetery Rose Chester County” – a light pink, 15’ rose.

“Chester # 2 Noisette”.

"Mrs. Woods' Light-Pink Noisette"

"Mrs. Woods' Lavender-Pink Noisette" (syn "Mount Vernon Purple Noisette")

This last rose is the same as “Chester Cemetery” (see 2009 ref) . But it is not clear whether this name is “Cemetery Rose Chester County” or “Chester # 2 Noisette”.

Then there is the question – is “Mrs. Woods’ Light Pink Noisette”s the same as “Mrs. Woods’ Lavender-Pink Noisette”, These are both listed as growing at the San Jose Heritage Rose Garden.

We would be very happy if Roses Unlimited would update their availability list at any time to include this if they are offering it for sale.

As these roses are not listed on their website, do you have advance knowledge of these becoming available ?

They are listed under the "What's Happening at RU" tab. It lists all of their new offerings for 2012.

Rev. Seidel wrote an article in the August 2001 Quarterly Rose Letter of the Heritage Roses Group entitled: "Those Fabulous Foundlings: The No-Name Noisettes". In it there is a paragraph about the MT. VPN:

"With so many pale or white Noisettes, pink and rose forms are very desirable. And we are fortunate to have two very good ones. The first, "Mount Vernon Purple Noisette" (Antique Rose Emporium), is the same as "Mrs. Wood's Lavender Pink" (Vintage Gardens). If "Mount Vernon Purple Noisette" was originally discovered on the Washington estate, no one is saying. It has the pointed leaflets and reddish growth of the China on a bush which easily attains five feet here [Emmaus, Pennsylvannia]. The clusters of cupped blooms are rich pink with a shot of carmine in the center and are almost fully double. In certain seasons the petals fade off to a lavender hue. "Mount Vernon Purple" can be sporadic in its rebloom and sometimes there are no late flowers at all in my garden."
