We have had it pointed out to us by Colin Dickson that you have given the breeder of Red Devil as Alexander Dickson. He said;
"I think the breeding of Red Devil should be credited to Patrick Dickson [Colin's father] and not his father [Colin's grandfather]."
Hope this helps

For most of the references Silver Lining and Prima Ballerina are the parents..... besides, it is in a 1969 catalogue so it was already bred in that year.

Yes... see the NOTE at the foot of the rose page. The article "Red Hybrid Teas" was written by Patrick Dickson stating a different cross. Since the rose was hybridized by Alexander Dickson, the linage reported in the article was probably from in-house records.

I wonder if the parentage of ‘Red Devil’ should be
‘Silver Lining’ x [Red Burn x Prima Ballerina]
See 1975 and 1980 references.

The US Patent states "Seedling of Silver Lining Prima Ballerina", which is a bit ambigous: could be "a seedling of Silver Ligning x Prima Ballerina" or a seedling of "Silver Lining x Prima Ballerina".

...but it specifies also that "The present invention relates to a new and distinct variety of rose plant of the hybrid tea class, which was originated by me by crossing the rose variety known as Silver Lining (unpatented) with the rose variety known as Prima Ballerina (unpatented).
