     My response------------

     Pacific Rose is a new one from NZ, a Splendour x Gala cross.  Like the
other recent new one, Southern Snap, it is being marketed in a tightly
controlled manor.  Or, unless one possesses a license to GROW it, one simply
can't grow it legally, nor market it.
     I understand that there are a few (very few) large growers in the Pacific
NW who are allowed to grow and market them.
     Likewise, nurseries can't access these varieties either.
