Or, if you go to the RHS site

Then click on the 'Plantfinder', and type in Rosa Dorothy or just 'Dorothy', you'll get a list. There is a rose called 'Dorothy Perkins' which is a climber. That might not be suitable for your purpose.

I do hope you find a lovely one to plant for your mother.

or as a last resort , there are places on the net that will sell you some seeds and register the name you want to give the resulting rose with the RHS about ninteen pounds .but I canot recomend as I have had no dealings with them .

Dorothy Perkins is a very pretty pink rambler.
Fryer's Roses: New at Hampton Court '09 is named for Doreen Constance Dorothy Elsie House of Bath and will support the hospice in Winsley Read. This Rose in aid of Dorothy house is strongly perfumed has very pale cream buds, with a hint of green, and with rosy overtones open to beautifully formed pale pearly rose pink flowers. The foliage is very dark, which sets off the flowers well, and the individual flower stems are unusually pale.

Hello Dwarf
Sorry to hear about your sad loss did you get a rose sorted out? They is a rose called Dorothy House that was been named after a hospice for people with life threatening illnesses to help raise money for them do a Google search and you should find a supplier also look at Dorothy House and you will see for yourself

Hi Dwarf. I really hope you found the rose you were looking for. It was only through Googling for the same thing that I came across this and saw your question!

My mom's name was Dorothy Rose and she passed away recently, and so I am looking for the same thing to put with a plaque at the Home she stayed in for the last 3 years of her life.

I have found one I think but its quite expensive. So if anyone knows of any more ....... Vonnie x
