This rosebush was acquired by me by mistake, but has turned out to be one of the best.  I went to the nursery and asked for an American Beauty rose (bare root) and was given a plant.  I came home and prepared a wonderful spot for it using wire screening (we have moles and gophers) and proceeded to wait for the blooms.  It succeeded beautifully in blooming its little heart out.  That fall when I pruned it back I got down close to the root ball and looked at the tag and lo and behold it said "Ingrid Bergman".  Oh well, they are much like American Beauty and it has continued through the years to perform like a champion.  I remember Ingrid Bergman the actress and she was beautiful, too, although much scorned here in the U.S. at that time as she was having an affair me here, was it Roberto Rosselini??  That goes way back to a different time!!
