Bred in the United States, 'Charlotte Armstrong' has literally thousands of descendants; in fact most American roses grown today have this rose in their lineage somewhere.

It won the AARS award, the ARS John Cook Medal, the ARS David Fuerstenberg Prize, and the Portland GM award all in the year after in was introduced. It also won the ARS Gertrude M. Hubbard award in 1945 and the NRS award in 1950.
