Found growing from the stump of a rose remembered by long-time San Juan Bautista residents, within the grounds of the Castro-Breen Adobe (State Historic Park), San Juan Bautista CA. It appeared to have come back from its roots after an unusually wet winter. Fred Boutin believes this is 'Bloomfield Courage,' and that seems to be a good attribution.
