Help finding Rosa Cleo = 'Beebop' (HT)

Hi there
4 years ago today my wife lost her sister Cleo. When we were out and about we found a rose once called Rosa Cleo and she would like to plant some in her honour on our garden
ive tried online and the only place I can find in the U.K. that stocked it no longer does

im trying to see if anyone has additional suggestions on how to find the rose or ways of bringing in roses from overseas?

    Style Roses handle roses bred by Bees so you could ask them but Cleo is not listed on their website.

    Is the company you tried Spring Reach? It is listed on their site.

    Unfortunately roses do get supplanted by new varieties, so they get dropped from breeder’s programmes/retailers lists and forgotten. It looks as if this one was only released in the UK and Australia as there is no patent submissions for any other countries. - see the discription and ‘buy from’ tabs on this database:

    As you are unlikely be able to import from Australia, assuming it’s still available there, your best bet would be to see if anyone growing it could give you cuttings. Alternatively, several UK-based rose growers offer a rose naming service so you could choose to have one named Cleo in her memory.

    Did you manage to find one? I’ve been looking for one too.

    There is an alstromeria called Cleo but it seems to be available to the trade only.
