Despite my love for the mid-century varieties and love for orange and orange-red in particular, I never even saw this rose in person until I started growing it in Florida in 2019. Really happily surprised/on the cusp of shocked to see how clear and bright and truly orange the color is! This IS the one that introduced the color gene! Health is vastly better than I expected, too. Vigor is excellent---wide AND tall. And back in the 70's was reclassified as a GR for a few years and could have stayed in that class for sure. Maybe I had low expectations for this one and my near rave review is overstated. All I can saw is this one is one of my best here on the beach in NE Florida.

Thank you very much Krimrose.
It appears the translator of the 1969 reference made an error, but translations are fraught with error.
Before making these alterations, may I check my computer's translation please.

Amaranth pink. cupped, 10cm bloom. 57 petals. fragrant. foliage dark green, shiny.

We've deleted the incorrect translation of 'Nezhenka' out of 'Kordes' Sondermeldung' and find we had the correct 'Nejenka' file all along. All seems OK now. Thanks for your insight Krimrose.
