Please help me find these roses

Tilton, NH(Zone 4a)

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,

I have a very prolific, I call it a Rambler,
much like your discription. Let me know if you want some cuttings.


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.
