"Jefferson" X 'Carefree Sunshine'

This is the best from the cross of a found rose study named "Jefferson" and the healthy yellow shrub 'Carefree Sunshine'. It's once-blooming, very healthy and has at least a tint of yellow.


"Jefferson" (the seed parent) is a once-blooming, medium pink, old-garden-rose type. It looks like it might be a Damask. It's tough and suckering. It only suffers a little mildew on the peduncles of the flowers.

Pictures I've seen of 'Petit Lisette' look like a good match.
