Memory Lane Rose

Good evening

Does anyone know where I can buy the rose Memory Lane. It's a dusky pink/lilac colour.  I had these in my wedding bouquet and would love a rose bush of them for my garden.

I have searched the Internet in vain, as I can't find any plants for sale.

Many thanks in advance

    ..'Memory Lane' is how it's known in New Zealand.... in this country, it's called 'Bewitched'.... and you can find it here...

    ..that's the same rose I linked to above, known as 'Bewitched' in this country and available here...

    ...the one Lady Sefton is talking about is apparently a florist rose, so she could get a bouquet from this site, and then try to grow it from cuttings, as suggested above...

    This nursery has it listed  http://www.chapelendnurserysperry.co.uk/Roses.html 

    But you're right, no one has plants, but several sell them in bouquets.

    This seems to be a rose grown purely for the cut flower trade so it will be unlikely that you will be able to get your hands on a plant.
  • Many thanks for your help and advice. I shall try the nursery suggested above, but if not then I might just have a go at growing one myself!

    This place sells them as cut roses 50cm long, you should be able to make cuttings from them, only problem is that they sell them in bunches of 20!

    The fact that they're advertised as available all year round suggests to me that they're imported - that might mean that they would not be happy in the UK climate/conditions - but you could always contact the above wholesaler and ask where they come from/who grows them etc?  Explain why you're interested (and that you're not a competitor after their supplier's contact details) and they may be able to help you.

    Edited to say: Snap! Sue image just realised it's the same website as the one you posted.
