"Multiple collections from old sites help tell us that our recollections were commercially distributed or at least widely handed around, and at one time named. 'St. Leonard's Noisette' etc. for example has a pattern of Maryland, Cincinnati, OH, La Mesa, Sonora, and Nevada City, CA. That tells me it is not just a chance seedling." Fred Boutin

FB notes further that: " . . . the first collection I made of this rose was in the early 70's in Constance Virtue's garden in La Mesa, CA. She had brought cuttings from her father's garden in Cincinnati, as "Aimee Vibert", which of course it wasn't. John MacGregor, Joyce and Virginia thought it was 'Jeanne d'Arc' and alternately 'Miss Glegg'. Perhaps this last id is the most likely. (JeriJennings 5-1-07)
