I was wondering if you knew where I could find a Forty Niner rose like the one in the picture attached to this or if not the same very similar. My mom has been looking for one for years and she hasn't had any luck and I would really like to get her one. She is a wonderful mother and definitely deserves it!!
Thank you,
Kathleen

Hi KathleenJB, Welcome!

Rose (Rosa 'Forty-Niner') is sure a beauty! I did a google search but couldn't find a source for it. Hopefully those who grow Roses will be along with suggestions real soon.

It's important to know your location. For example, it wouldn't do any good to suggest a retailer in the US if you live in Australia. Help us narrow the search by completing your profile page to include a location. Thank You!

Edited to add:
Three of our NGA members have this type of rose.
Perhaps we could ask where they obtained their Forty Niner Rose plants?

Kathleen contacted me since that was my photo. I gave her a link to Help MeFind Roses with potential vendors.
