Mary Davis, NSW. .......at about the same time [1962-ish?] I was given cuttings of the Australian raised floribunda Mrs. R. M. Finch (Mr. Finch 1923) which I have grown to love so much that it now occupies prime space in our garden and the three 1m bushes flower, with dead-heading, from early October to August when they have to be pruned. Its soft pink semi-double blooms are abundantly produced and hold so well that it displays itself in three shades of pink as the flowers fade with age. I was able to identify it for John Vickers of Woodleigh Farm, Marton, NZ where the color was much deeper than ours. New Zealand’s climate produces wonderful roses in their true colors not faded by the hot sun like ours in summer.

Mrs. R. M. Finch. Polyantha (1923) 2-3 feet. Classic small buds of rosy pink, open to double pearly pink blooms....the large clusters of flowers a pretty sight. While I was in Alburquerque one Summer, Mrs. Finch turned up at every garden party, wearing her lovely pink tones and looking fresh and dainty in weather of 90 to 100 degrees. Such a great favorite in that climate would be a success anywhere.
