I worked in the Landscape Horticulture field for 40+ years. Double up with being a florist for 15 of them, and I can say I'm more than familiar with varietal names.
Where we in the US don't have a "royalty", we have folks who substitute well.

Abraham Lincoln
Deep Red-Grandiflora
Abe Lincoln

John F Kennedy
Grand. White
JFK, Late Pres. of the US.

For landscape purposes, the grands and hybrid teas require too much care.
I'm partial to the "English shrub rose". More compact, half the care.

This is to inform people about the history of roses.          
Several of the Old Roses that originated in Europe in the 1800s were named in honor of monarchs, sovereigns, and nobility.     
Some of these hybrid roses took numerous years before they were successfully developed.

and that's fine... but your lead in can be vague at times without further clarification. iow. I appreciate your questions and comments and posts in general...but in the world of foruming... specificity..is better than none.

even more so when u expect or would like to see responses. not a criticism per se but advice from a very old forummer.
