Autumn damask - best place to order

I can squeeze one more rose into the pink and white bed in my front yard. I'm leaning towards AD but have seen wildly different colors on various nursery sites. Pickering and Heirloom seem to have deep cherry colored ones. Other places have medium pink. I only grow things on their own roots and am on the east coast so give preference to nurseries east of the Mississippi.

How about the Antique Rose Emporium? I highly recommend them. Plants are on their own roots, big (come in 2-gallon pots), and very healthy. ARE's Autumn Damask is pink.

RE: Autumn damask - best place to order

Heirloom's and Pickering's version is indeed different from others. Assuming that the story is correct that 'Quatre Saisons Blanc Mousseux'(Perpetual White Moss) is a sport of the "real" Autumn Damask, then it must be the paler pink one that everyone else sells that is the real thing, since it is the paler one that does produce that sport occasionally (nice photo of it on, under 'Quatre Saisons Blanc Mousseux'. Or use the link below for a photo I took of the sport at Mottisfont Abbey.) The deeper pink rose is a beautiful thing in its own right, but definitely different.
