Of course, Ping. You're most welcome to use any of my photos, and there's no need to ask in the future. Are you able to copy the photo from HMF? Unfortunately, these are very old photos and I no longer have access to the originals. I could copy them from HMF and send them to you if that's easier.

All the best,

This looks like a photo of some modern variety with very quartered blooms instead.

You may be right about this, Stefan. However, I'm not sure why your comment came to me.

Hello Cliff,
I see this is an archival photo and you may no longer grow this rose, However, I believe there are a few photos in ‘Barcelona’ which may belong in the “Francis Dubreuil (in commerce as)” file. Could I ask you to look at Hillary Merrifield’s 2020 reference in either of these two files.
Barcelona (hybrid tea, Kordes, 1932)
"Francis Dubreuil (in commerce as)”
She sets out very clear differences between the two roses. I do not like to REASSIGN members photos, but this reference may allow you to reassign this photo.
Thanks, Patricia.

I've now glanced over the extensive comments on this on HMF. It's been well over ten years since I've grown 'Barcelona' and when I did I didn't have the ability to really focus on this variety, given that I was trying to save EuroDesert Roses and a lot more. I'm going to defer to you on this one. What would you suggest? It might be easiest to simply remove my photo(s) of 'Barcelona'. (I've not checked to see if I have more than one.)

I just had a quick look and that's the only photo of the rose that I posted on HMF.

My opinion is that it may be best if all the photos are in the one file. We had photos in ‘Francis Dubreuil’; “Francis Dubreuil - in commerce as”; and in ‘Barcelona’ and I have some doubts about this last attribution. I’ll move it to “Francis Dubreuil - in commerce as” for the moment. Thank you Cliff.

Hi Mr. Harris!

I'm wondering if you would be willing to share cuttings of Ross Rambler?

I'm not sure how or why this got forwarded to me, but I've never grown Ross Rambler.

Hi Cliff!

Sorry about that! I clicked on the "Gardens" tab on the Ross Rambler page and found Peter Harris' Roses listed as a garden that it's grown in, so I left a comment there. Are you involved with that garden?
