Comments Perhaps Memento is a rose best forgotten. It was parent to the only slightly less obscure Disco Dancer and to the very successuful Anisley Dickson (AKA Dicky). On the other hand, once one has seen this rose it's hard to forget. It can cover itself in roses of an interesting color somewhere between scarlet and coral. It is available in the UK.
