Please be patient and follow this address: http://texas-rose-rustlers.com/. When you get to the home page, click on the left hand side the "Unidentified Roses". Scroll to the last one titled "Titus County Cemetery Rose" and click on the name for more information. Has anyone ever seen a rose like this? I would love to have one.

Lantana: What a beautiful rose! Pickering Nurseries has about 3 dark red roses, shrubs, dating back to late 1800's. One of them looks almost identical.

Lantana:

Looks to be an earlier Hybrid Tea. You could get in contact with the folks at Vintage - they have the largest supply of vintage hybrid teas. http://www.vintagegardens.com

The general shape of the bush, flower and foliage, the fact that it blooms when it does, and that it is described as very fragrant, makes me think it might be a bourbon. There is only one red bourbon that I know of, however, which is 'Prince Charles,' (1842), and in all the pix I've seen of that, it's more dark pink than real red. This one looks to be a REAL red. And I love the way it turns darker all the way to black -- how appropriate for a cemetary rose!

You might contact the Antique Rose Emporium, in Tyler (?), Texas -- they have a service whereby if you send them a picture and description, they will try to ID the rose for you. Call them and give them the URL above, maybe they can help. They may even already know of this rose, as Texas Rose Rustlers is a pretty well-known and respected organization. ood luck -- it's a beauty -- if you find out its name, please let us know!

Hi Lantana - Funny, I was just looking through the J & P rose catalogue and on the back cover there is a rose similar to the one you are enquiring about. Well, the colour and form look similar, but I doubt if this is it - it's a new HT called Black Magic.
