Who is HGTV please Michael? Is there a website?
[later edit - found it. Thanks anyway]

I am having the same difficulty in Australia with renamed roses. This secrecy brings, to my mind at least, a sense of mistrust on those who market modern roses.

Its an America, and possibly International????, TV station for home and garden. Home and Garden Television.

Yeah, I think the renaming business is bonkers. Its hard enough to educate the public... :[

'Greta's Got This' looks like it might be derived from Scarlet Meidiland.

Yeah, I imagine the parentage is similar to Ruby Meidiland, but RM is probably a better rose.

You've gotta love the creative naming of those that begin with BOS.

BOS is probably W. E. (Bill) Bossom (from the UK).

But the rest of those codes are for the record book. Here's what I suspect:

(ROS)PCHSNG=peach single
(ROS)RDSNG=red single
(ROS)YSNG=yellow single

In what zones will it grow? I do not see any indication.

We've added Zones 5a as per the reference.
The patent says "Hardiness: Survived the last three winters in The Netherlands."

Thank you so much for letting me know, Patricia. I live in Old Town, Maine, zone 5a supposedly, though I have had trouble with roses classified as zone 4, so I probably should not chance Caroline!
