It reminds me a little of my Perfume Delight, so I'll throw that out as a suggestion to get you started (have you already done a search on

I'm sorry I don't know whether J&P sold it during the period your father was acquiring roses, but it was first introduced in the 1970's and is still sold today. Good luck! Dawn

Here is a link that might be useful: Perfume Delight

Hi Dawn!

Yes...that's where my confusion comes in! I've looked at many roses on the website and searched on several nursery websites as well. Perfume Delight was a thought and Fragrant Memory has been suggested, too. I have found several roses with similar characteristics, although there might be some differences in regards to color, scent, growth or introduction. That's where I'm hoping someone with some old J&P catalogs or brochure information might come into play, since this was a test panel rose. I've only been able to identify one other rose from that group and that was "Pleasure".

I thank you for your suggestions and will keep Perfume Delight on my list of "possibles"!

Happy Holidays!

I know this is out there but I was wondering if any of you have some of the old Jackson and Perkins catalogs from around 1989/1990/1991 that might help me identify this numbered rose I acquired years ago from my Dad, but lost to a teething puppy

Wish I could help.. I didn't start saving catalogs until the late 90's.

Beautiful rose.
