A rose is a rose is a rose

Per riba_rambles, Rosa cultivar: "Christopher Marlowe".

Somewhere, I'm sure Kit is rather smug that his is nicer than either of Will's. (So to speak.) Although I do think Annie Hathaway's is the clear winner of the four.

Two more for my eventual Literary Rose Garden. (which will sadly be mostly pink, apparently) 

Ben doesn't get one. "Always a bridesmaid," quoth truepenny. Nor is there a John Milton nor a John Donne. No Yeats, no Kipling, no Hemingway.

It what must surely be a crowning injustice, there is also no Rosa cultivar: Robert Burns. (There is a Robbie Burns. Which I love. Ironic that it's white, wouldn't you say?)
