'Trumpeter' Floribunda. Sam McGredy 1977

Looks very interesting, appears in Good Samaritan's pedigree
.
Does it make hips?

How much fragrance?

Looks healthy based on Pedigree and comments.

Anything else I'm all ears.

John, I tend to look at interesting roses bred in the last half of the 1900's for breeding purposes. It's a bad disease one gets when the breeding bug gets a hold.

I have been in business, seen a lot of company failures due to them manufacturing what they consider a good idea.
Others who study the market and manufacture what the public want seem to be more successful.
So remember the statement "Short, fat, over dressed and doused in perfume"? That seems to be what the market wants so having found a very very fragrant rose that passes all this fragrance onto a very large percentage of it's babies I'm looking for roses to trial it with. Unfortunately the good fragrance rose seems to dilute strong colours from the pollen parents.
Hence, I'm looking at Trumpeter as a pollen parent just to trial the colour.
This rose is available from Thomas and Ruston's, just want some more information.
