I Zingari is the final HT remaining of the few Pemberton HTs .After the last Vintage plant sold, it is no longer available commercially in the US. As far as I can determine, the only garden in the US listed on HMF in which it remains is the San Jose Heritage, unless someone here grows it and doesn't have it listed. I'm hoping someone has a plant with sufficient growth to be able to share a few bud sticks, flowering stems which have dropped their spent flowers this summer and whose growth buds have not already started pushing new foliage. Ideally, at least five or six usable buds would work perfect. I'm happy to pay postage if you have it available and I'll be happy to provide detailed instructions how to mail it safely. Might anyone have some wood available from this old modern?

I'd hoped it wouldn't fall into obscurity so quickly. This was one I traded Rose Hills for years ago and spread around to a number of nurseries to keep it from extinction. Well, all of those nurseries are gone. At least one of the listed gardens is gone as its "mom" has passed away. I'm feeling more than a little protective over I Zingari and hope I can find some buds to get them going and the plant more safely tucked away for at least a while longer. Thanks. Kim

All the times I went to the SJ Heritage Rose Garden (I lived 10 min. away), I am surprised that I never came across this one as I always looked for something new to photograph. So sad that it's now missing from commerce.

Sue, Jill Perry checked for it at The Heritage. They've lost it, also. So far, the only plant to have surfaced was John Bagnasco's plant near San Diego. I have received cuttings via Priority Mail several times recently from elsewhere here in California in less than two days. I mailed Burling cuttings via Priority two weeks ago and they got them there early, in less than 24 hours by Priority. It required two attempts and FIVE DAYS for USPS to get the bud wood from I Zingari from San Diego to here via Express Mail, not Priority. It seems postage printed on line has a time expiration on it, per John's experience, so the box was returned to him the first time. It was in pretty bad shape when received but I budded everything possible and took the chance of trying to root what couldn't be budded. Several of the buds have remained green and fresh looking, but they've been through one heat spike with a second on the way. I, too, hope something makes it. John said he sent a third of his plant, and his plant is "ailing". No "pressure, of course! LOL! Kim
