American Pillar (Rambler) [(R. wichuraiana x R. setigera) x red HP]

Van Fleet (1918): "The American Pillar Rose was raised by me in 1898 from seed of a Wichuraiana-setigera cross pollinated with a bright red Remontant Rose seedling, that had a touch of Polyantha or rather Rosa multiflora in its make-up. It thus contains the blood of four Rose species, but I regard it as essentially a Wichuraiana-setigera hybrid. This variety appears to succeed under very diverse conditions."
