How can I find out which roses were originally hybridised in Spain? I'm particularly looking for roses that would have been around in Spain about 80 to 100 years ago.

The last two paragraphs of this article will tell you something about Pedro Dot, the most famous hybridizer of Spanish roses 80 years ago.

Thanks. In looking into that I found out about Eugenio Fojo and his La Florida nursery, which turns out to be more interesting to me. Using your search form I found their Irene Churruca rose but not their La Florida rose. Does that mean the La Florida rose is no longer in production?

There's a good chance that La Florida is no longer available in commerce. Irene Churruca probably is the only Fojo rose that's still on display in a number of public gardens and is available commercially.

Is there an international rose group that would know for certain if the La Florida is still available?

I personally don't know of any such group. Perhaps someone else here does. If I were trying to find an elusive rose, I probably would post a comment in the entry for the rose on HMF.com, although that entry shows no commercial sources for this rose and only one garden displaying it:

I can't believe it! I found a supplier of the rose in question right here in England Hurray!
- but I just missed them, now I have to wait until November Sad
That is, the Irene Churucca that I'd turned my attention to, which was very hard to track down.
