Bardou Job or Alcatraz Rose

Tuggy3(9b NorCal)March 21, 2013

Does anyone know of availability of the Alcatraz Rose? It used to be available for propagation at VG but that's not possible now. Several people in our area are interested in growing this one. I believe it's a bourbon.
Thanks. Mary

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Rogue Valley has the precise one you seek, but not propagated right now. From their web site: Kim

This is a recent rediscovery in an abandoned garden on Alcatraz Island by Gregg Lowery and Phillip Robinson. The plant that we have is still quite young but already is showing the characteristics that they site: vigorous, floriferous, fragrant. The blooms are almost black red.
