Tombola Rose-- Where can I buy one?

I went to Longwood gardens this past weekend and I saw a Tombola rose! I'd never heard of them before and I LOVE IT!

Trouble is I can't find ANYWHERE that has them. Does anyone know of an online company that sells them? (or want to sell me one?)

This appears to be a Dutch florist rose.

I would ask Longwood Gardens where they got theirs.

The only place I see listed is in the Netherlands and it is listed as a florist rose like hoovb said. Longwood may have imported it, which is a very involved, lengthy and expensive process that they would have the resources to do. It's fairly new and patented so I doubt you'll find it available anywhere here.

RE: Tombola Rose-- Where can I buy one? shows two roses by that name, one a floribunda and one a hybrid tea. Can you describe the one that you saw? Perhaps we could recommend something similar. I won't get to Longwood until early June.
