Is Sally Holmes a classic shrub ?
Since Sally Holmes is a Shrub and Hyb Musk (per 2003 Combined Rose List), is it a classic shrub, even though relatively new?
An early June rose show I often attend has expanded categories. From one catch-all Shrub category, they now list 1) Classic Shrub (hybrid kordesii, hybrid moyesii, hybrid musk, and hybrid rugosa only); 2) Modern Shrub (excludes classic shrub); and 3) Species. They also have categories for OGR, as 4) Dowager Queen (before 1867, for which species roses existing before 1867 are eligible) and 5) Victorian rose (1867 or later).
Modern Shrub includes Knock-Out, Carefree Sunshine, and all the David Austin roses. But is there a list of classic shrubs?
Also, could a species rose like r. roxburghii be entered twice - for Dowager Queen OGR and for species?
Thank you for your help. Kathy George
