Steve Jobs had a favorite Austin rose. Does anyone know which one.
Also Jimmie Carter had favorite roses too. Does anyone know which are his favorites?

I know the landscaper who designed and installed Steve Job's Woodside, CA garden back in the mid-late '90s, and although I can't verify Steve Job's exact literal "favorite" rose, I do know that my friend Chip said he planted a large # of the beautiful Graham Thomas roses on his property.

My friend (and former landscaping boss) Chip now lives in Scotland; but we still keep in touch, so I'll try to remember to ask him your question the next time I e-mail him.

Neat question. Anxious to see the answer to both.

The photo of Constance Spry engulfing a fence that appeared in the Austin catalog for several years was from the Pixar property, which Jobs owned at one time.

The information about 'Constance Spry' comes from the Eulogy Jobs' sister wrote and delivered.

I don't question it. I'm assuming she knows. YMMV.
