I have noted that retailers of this rose in Australia and UK give the registration name of BASgoodas, which is inconsistent with Kordes typical naming protocols. Is this a Kordes rose or is Brad Jalbert of Select Roses, Canada the hybridiser as he claims on his FB page (also mentioned on Phoenix Perennials website). North American name Our Anniversary.

Definitely, Basgoodas is not a Kordes variety name. Phoenix gardens equates this to 'Our Anniversary' of Brad Jalbert, as you say. However, 'Our Anniversary' has a breeder code of JALamazing. This "Basgoodas" name is unusual.

Seems this isn't bred by Kordes. Brad Alden-Brown from Rankin's Roses on Garden Guru states that 'As Good As It Gets' comes from "the breeding house in Canada, Brad Jalbert, & it's beautiful & it's lush & its got fragrance as well so it's as good as it gets".
