Derek's Orange Rose

3 Nov '11 5:07 pm
Being a fan of Sam McGredy IV's roses, I wondered if you could identify this one for me. Derek is an acquaintance from Home for Artists(ning) who shares his wonderful Photography with us slavering artists always looking for Source Material. He never knows the names and he knows very well I will take the hook
every time!

One of the other artists (from Texas, USA) said his wife recognised it as one she had for 5 years when she was raising a collection of 159! She reckoned it was a Sam McGredy called "Today" over there; if it has another name in NZ. I can't find it. I found the rose on this site. http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/ This is not a link! They won't let you get a copy of it, and every time you go back into it they have changed the photo, grr!
Its a Grandiflora, came out in 1989!

Does it ring any bells, anyone! I have been on the computer nearly all day......!

I discovered you can get a Photo of the "Today" if you click on "File" up on the top left of the page and then click on "save page as"....Hah! Try and stop me will you?

Sorry, I can't help, just bumping in hopes someone else will see it and know. It's a beauty!

I love Sam McGredy for his bright, fruity colours. This rose is very orange, which should make it easier to identify? Should? I don't think I can, though. It's a beauty!
