History of Memorial Day Tea Rose

I cannot confirm anywhere on the web that memorial day tea rose was the 1962 rose of the year although 5 years ago or so this info was on the web. Is this true?

Hello Celia,
The Memorial Day hybrid tea rose was introduced by Carruth in 2004, so it can't be from 1962.
Memorial Day is a time to remember and this is a rose to remember for sure. So fragrant with orchid pink flowers.
And it likes heat which is great for all who garden in hot summer climate zones.

Here is my page about Memorial Day rose..

There is even a buying link on that page for those of you that like to plant one in memory of someone who served our country.
