i am looking for Dr van Fleet, a wite-to-pink climber. My great-Grandmother has/had this in her gardens, and everwhere I've tried is sold out or no longer carrying them! I tried Roses Unlimited, Mary's plant farm, Pickering Nurseries, and Old Heirloom and Garden Roses.

The other rose I am looking for has no name that I know of, other than River rose. It is a shrubby rose, single red flowers with a hint of purple, and it grows profusely around the Heceta Head lighthouse in Oregon. Any help on this one would be appreciated!

Thank you,

Hi Linnea,

You may want to grow Dr. Van Fleet for sentimental reasons-it is, I believe, a once-blooming rose. This rose has a sport (ie, identical in appearance) to DVF, but it repeats-ie, it will bloom all summer and not just once. The name of this rose is New Dawn. Finally, there is a sport of ND that has a more double flower of the semi-double ND, called Awakening. This is the one that I grow and am quite pleased with it.
