This rose was named after me as a "thank you" for all of the work I had done in the rose world over the years by the breeder. The rose is not in commerce and has only been used in his breeding program. However, there is a Canadian nursery selling the seed parent, Dornröschen (shrub, Kordes, 1960), as 'Lyn Griffith'.
