I heard of the California Mystery Rose "Secret Garden Musk Climber" many years ago in Denver, long before I knew my Tampa house even existed. Hard to get...I was on the waiting list for two years. Famed rosarian Fred Boutin told me once he feels a possible parentage might be (unknown white Floribunda rose X Rosa moschata). Mine has been growing several months.....first bloom this morning. The fragrance is just like people say.....pure cinnamon oil!!! I so hope it thrives here like it does in southern California! Kim Rupert says it is not a good seed parent, so I picked the bloom and put in a baggie in the fridge as a pollen parent.
