I have found a rose called "Andrea Stelzer" which is a hybrid T. Former S African Miss world!! I have tried to find suppliers but not having any luck at present.
There is also a minature one called Andrea Parade. If you could let us know what type of rose it is that would be helpful

Copy and paste this into your web browser, It is a contact email from a website called RaytheRose. There are mentions of Ralph S Moore on his site so he may be able to point you in the right direction, where to buy it, etc. The only Andrea rose I've found by Ralph S Moore is Andrea Parade and I think it is a minature.

Hi Angeleyes obviously Andrea given you a lot of info - and with a name like that she should be able to help in your search !

Ralph Moore was a famous American rose grower but he does mention Sean McCann Roses of Dublin although couldnt see Andrea listed - did find a yellow hybrid Tea called Andrea by a Czech grower but no availability details.

Dublin not too far from you and site gives contact details so may be able to help you.

I have just found Ralph Moore's nursery 'Sequoia', but it closed down in 2008 when Ralph Moore reached 101!
There was an older variety (1971) which was a minature called 'Andrea' and is not freely available. I don't know who is selling these roses now, I've tried looking for suppliers but unfortunately can't help. It may be worth asking some rose experts which myself and BB have suggested

I checked Plant Finder on the RHS website and came up with the following supplier:

Contact Keith Jones
Address Golden Fields Nurseries, Barrow Lane, Tarvin,
Cheshire, CH3 8JF United Kingdom
Tel: (01829) 740663

However, it is not listed on their website and they are closed in Jan and Feb, but you might try contacting them in March

What a beautiful website greenfingers, 'The Country Garden Plant Centre' They have roses for just about every name you can think of. If you order off this site Angeleyes for a bare root rose you will get it and be able to plant it before March this year.
