Thanks to HMF user Dan Russo/NEroseman for the following information about Apple Blossom:
Compare Jackson Dawson's 'Apple Blossom' which he bred at the Arnold Arboretum outside Boston, Massachusetts in the late 1890's to Apple Blossom
that was patented by the widow of Luther Burbank in 1932, USA Plant Patent 65. Note that the names and parentage are identical.
ARS shows the parentage of the Burbank Apple Blossom
in Modern Roses as Dawson x R. multiflora even though the Burbank patent application lists the breeding as "apparently a hybrid of Rosa rugosa
and Rosa multiflora.
