My grandma read my previous post about the plants I procured from her, and she e-mailed with corrections for my accounts about the roses I inherited:

You have a healthy looking garden. Bravo !!

It is the Graeber rose. Gus Graeber from Stevensville Mich gave it to Carl. Gus is a gardner par excellence. He grew up on a fruit farm in the St. Joseph area of Micxh. He was also a first class orchid grower.

And the yellow rose came from the farm yard of your great great grandmother. She died before I was born so I never knew her. My aunt Mary (the Yordy's) were living on the place when I dug up the rose for our garden when I was in high school in the late 1930's.
