Would anybody be able to give me the name of a rose sport that is still under patent? I need to look up a sport's patent on the USPTO's website, but I'm having trouble finding one. Thanks :)

Hmmm...I looked all through Help Me Find for roses with Peace in the name, or Eden, thinking surely there was a sport, but found all the other roses with those names were from different crosses!
I'm no help. Hopefully someone else can think of a new patented sport.
Confused
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

Well known patented sports of Peace but the patents are from years ago:
Flaming Peace aka 'Kronenbourg' - Macbo. sport of Peace (hybrid tea, Meilland 1935)
United States - Patent No: PP 2,745
and
Chicago Peace - sport of Peace (hybrid tea, Meilland 1935)
United States - Patent No: PP 2,037 on 21 Mar 1961

I found one Eden sport still under patent:
White Eden - sport of Eden (Large Flowered Climber, Mouchotte/Meilland, 1985)
United States - Patent No: PP 16,739 on 27 Jun 2006

Hope that helps

Here is the patent for the hybrid tea rose 'Secret's Out' which is a sport of 'Secret'

I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

Thank you!! Perfect:) I'm actually taking an Intellectual Property class in law school and a discussion came up on plant patents. I mentioned that sports and mutations could be patented, and even the professor questioned it. So, he asked me to find a patent for a sport. Thanks everyone. I knew I wasn't nuts!

By definition a sport is a unique plant, although it is a mutation, it CAN be patented just like any genetically engineered plant. In the case of a sport, nature did the genetic engineering ... Whistling
