Thanks Sandie. We'll enter the references forthwith.
'Mary Guthrie' had R.wichuraiana as a grandmother, so, yes, hybrid wich.
But it is interesting that in 1932, no parentage was being listed.
Apparently by 1940, Modern Roses II was listing the parentage.

I've never been able to understand the 1936 reference to "heliotrope pink blooms".
My heliotrope is purple. Does it come in pink?

1935 The Australian Rose Annual
p121-3 T. A. Stewart, Editor: Awards for Australian Roses: Gratification will be felt by Australian Rose lovers generally at the fact that not only are Australian Roses receiving generous recognition in America, but that, in results from the Portland (U.S.A.) International Test Garden recently issued, three of Mr. Alister Clarks Roses have been successful in securing awards, ….. and Mary Guthrie each receiving a Certificate of Merit. Sincere congratulations are extended to Mr. Clark. Mary Guthrie (H.T.) is a distinct and striking Rose of a new colour obtained by the use of a new Chinese species, which has imparted to it a shade of vivid pink that is pleasing and unique. Wonderfully free-flowering.
