Are you familiar with the Linda McCartney Rose Bush? A friend of mine has big, beautiful pink roses from hers, however, I can't find this rose bush anywhere.

I am unable to find a Linda McCartney Rose. There is however The McCartney Rose, a newer hybrid tea which has gorgeous pink blooms that are over three inches across and has won many awards for its fragrance. It is from House of Meilland. Here is a photo from the Rhode Island Rose Society web site.

Parks has offered it as part of their "new rose collection" and lists it as hardy to zone 5.

Wayside Gardens also listed it in several collections but has now apparently sold out.

Best of luck with your search!
