I have not seen that rose but would get it in a heartbeat if I seen it.

I may see if they will bare root and ship one to me.

Thanks for the tip! I visited their gardens last year and they were spectacular! I did not know that they were selling plants too. I have to look into this!

BTW, this rose is quite small - 0.5m x 0.7m! That is a great, compact size.

I went to Olds college last month and took a few photos. It has a very faint apricot fragrance. I was impressed by it's shiny foilage and low compact growth. It was disease free, however well spaced from any diseased roses. The more mature flowers were large. Non-self cleaning. The rose garden itself was in a very protected microclimate, in a sunny area surrounded by buildings.

This rose is definitely on my wishlist for next year. Time to plan the perfect spot!
