Kim Rupert just e-mailed me that Burbank himself gave plants of 'Burbank' to Thomas Edison and Henry Ford for their Florida homes! This along with Jack Holmes selling for Mother's Day 1933 a pink rose that it time got the nick name "Cracker Rose" could help explain why it was once so common in Florida! Kim likes the idea (as do I) of DNA mapping of 'Santa Rosa', 'Burbank' and "Pink Cracker Rose" to try to sort all this out.
