Rose of the Month For October, 2011
by Frank Treadway, Consulting Rosarian
'Memphis Music’ is a sport of ‘Memphis Magic’. It has a very striking deep red color with yellow stripes. Because it is a sport, it varies considerably in the variegation and may revert to all red as found in its parent, ‘Memphis Magic’. It is successful in exhibition, winning many prizes. Many people think that this is the most outstanding of Whit Wells’ Tennessee ‘Memphis’ roses. Everybody knows about Memphis as the home of great Blues as well as Country music. This rose is more country to me. It is a difficult rose to purchase in commerce because it varies in its color so much. Try to get this rose and sing along with Whit.
Breeder: Verlie 'Whit' Wells, 2006
