I am lucky enough to live 'within a stone's throw' of one of Australia's largest rose growers. Every couple of years, they have an enormous 'nursery door' clearance of their roses at 'next to nothing' prices. I bought this little rose at their latest sale & it is called 'Jumpin' Jack'. It is NOT by David Austin! I won't confess the extent to which I otherwise indulged at the sale, except to say that I found a little stash of French Delbard roses in one corner that I could not resist, & am waiting eagerly for their first blooms.
