I ordered mine from Vintage Gardens from their site "This unforgettable sport of Mutabilis was found in Bermuda by Ronica Watlington on a plant in her garden in the late 1990s. It has since then been a favorite on the show benches at the Bermuda Rose Society. Much as I love Mutabilis, this sport has truly stolen my heart; the bright freshness of the yellow buds and the moment of strong yellow on the first day of the open flower are striking. The blooms fade to creamy yellow, white and then blush to pink, and as with Mutabilis it is the overall effect of the plant cyclying these colors continually that is endearing. Peter Beales nursery has offered this in the UK for some years, but to date it does not seem to have been put in commerce in the USA. Beales also says this is a seedling of Mutabilis, but it is in fact a sport. 2010 IMPORT ROSE SPECIAL. Please read our terms on orders for these imports before ordering. Plants will be shipped in 2013! "

It's been doing very well in St. Pete. This year, I need to graft a few on Fortuniana. I need to get rid of my lookin4you2xist account on here and transfer the info to my oldroselover account. My Yahoo mail account has been giving me a lot of problems. Hence, the main reason I'm never logged in here,GW, or part of Chez Vibert. It will be some work but it will be worth it when I get some time. Malcolm should also have some grafted ones ready soon. It is a very nice sport.

Thank you. Hopefully the owners of this nursery will update their HelpMeFind listing with their complete plant list.
