‘Glenara No. 14’ (Climbing hybrid tea). Alister Clark. This rose has been admired by all who have seen it at rose shows. ‘Glenara No. 14’ is a strong growing climber, bearing large globular flowers of two tone pink, they are borne on long stems making them suitable for picking. Repeat flowering. This rose is most likely an Alister Clark seedling. It was given the name ‘Glenara No. 14’ because it was the 14th variety taken for propagation from Alister Clark’s property ‘Glenara’. It does not appear to match the description of any of the roses listed in Alister Clark’s journals. It is therefore quite possible that this variety was never originally named.

Susan Irvine. My catalogue from Nieuwesteeg roses also lists a mystery rose ‘Glenara No. 14’ described as a climbing hybrid tea. The catalogue states that it bears “large globular flowers of two-tone pink”. Being a hybrid tea it is recurrent and the catalogue suggests that it is probably one of those unnamed seedlings that came up so freely in the garden at Glenara and were often given to friends. Many of them were never named. I can’t resist trying this one.
