Attorney-at-law & The 'Yellow Rose of Texas'

Back in the early 19th century, the 'Yellow Rose of Texas', aka 'Harrison's Yellow' or the 'Oregon Trail Rose' origin was a chance hybrid.  Between the 8th & 9th Avenues on 32nd Street, north of New York City, it first bloomed at the suburban villa (just south of the present General Post Office) of George F. Harison, attorney.  In the Spring of 2009 (near his grave) 'Harison's Yellow' was planted by the Heritage Foundation.  Esquire George created this rose in his Manhattan garden and it has now become a part of the Heritage Rose District of New York City.
