Just off the top of your head..a question..
My mother remembers a rose from the middle 1950's planted at a house she rented. The owner said it was American Beauty. But Mama said this rose was very deep red..almost a dark red wine color. The petals were thick and fuzzy..deep red. The bloom itself was very gobular shaped, lots of petals and big. The bush was around 4-5 ft tall...I know this doesn't help but I was wondering if perhaps the fuzzy, thick petals might ring a bell.
I don't think American Beauty is a deep red. The rose rebloomed.
This is in Panama City Florida..North Florida.
I didn't know how to even begin to ask if anyone can could just guess...give me a couple names..I will investigate those names.
I would love to find this rose and plant it for her. She just keeps telling me how beautiful this rose was...it had to be mail ordered because there are NO nurseries here selling roses and there wasn't back then.
Thank you for any suggestions you could give me. I know this is really impossible without a picture. But I thought I would just ask. :0)))
