In editing and typesetting a 150-page catalogue of roses, i ran across the following two amongst the Hybrid Teas:
- Lucky Lady
- HT (Gr) rrr/fff/6 Swim & Armstrong, 1966 [Huntington]
- A bicolor pink seedling of Charlotte Armstrong with light pink petals,
darker pink on the reverse, quite fragrant, Originally classed as a Grandiflora,
Lucky Lady is a vigorous grower, as are nearly all of Charlotte Armstrong's
children. First rate for exhibition and cutting. AARS, 1967.
- Lucky Piece
- HT rrr/fff/4 Wyant, 1962 [Huntington]
- The punning name partially disguises the fact that this is a delightful
color-sport of Peace, combining changeable, brassy tones of rose-pink, gilt, and
bronze in a full, shapely, bowl-shaped bloom. Very fragrant. Growth habit is the
same as its sport-parent; strong and stout.
The codes in the second line of each entry refer to class (HT is Hybrid Tea),
remontancy or frequency of rebloom (rrr is very remontant), amount of fragrance
(fff is very fragrant), relative size (from small 1 to large 6), the name of the
hybridizer, date of introduction, and [in brackets] the provenance of the actual
plant material from which the seller is propagating clones. The code "AARS" means
that the rose won an All-America Rose Selection Gold medal in the year indicated.
Of the two "Lucky" roses listed above, i would personally recommend the bronzey Lucky Piece
more highly than the pink Lucky Lady; and alongside it i would grow another colour-sport
of Peace, the flame-pink-yellow beauty called Chicago Peace.
Should you wish to purchase young plants of these or any of the other 2,000 roses
in the catalogue, they can be had from my good friend Gregg Lowery at:
- Vintage Gardens Antique Roses
- 2833 Old Gravenstein Hwy. So.
- Sebastopol, California 95472
- (707) 829-2035.
