does anyone know of a website or book dedicated to rose sports or could anyone post a list please as i think i would like have a lot of roses that are prone to sporting.
thanks in advance kevin
Here are a few of the sports listed in Vintage Gardens Catalog.
Mrs Charles Bell (which sported Carless Love)
Yellow Talisman (possibly also known as Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt)
Red Talisman (also known as Mary Hart)
Climbing Red Talisman
Dick Koster (which sported Mother's Day and Snow White)
"Pink Margo #1"
"Pink Margo #2"
I remember your post from the rose forum, I hope this is still helpful

Oops - another round of bad proof reading - Carless love is really called Careless Love.
The ones in quotes ("") are study names.
thanks marbree that will be helpfull.
Actually, Margo Koster was a sport of Dick Koster. I've seen revert.
Queen Elizabeth has a number of sports:
Yellow Queen Elizabeth
Sebastian Schultheis (almost red)
Delta Queen (more petals, tendency to spot)
Weisse Queen Elizabeth (white)
Lafayette (Joseph Guy) also did several:
Frau Astrid Spath (pink)
Dagmar Spath (white)
Zuknuft (deep red)
Fuchsine Guy (purple -- I haven't seen this one)
