I recently registered a rose I bred in 2006, now named ARDenewetak (official ARS name) or 'Ivy Mike'. It came from a cross of (Sheri Anne X Out of Yesteryear) X Tradescant (aka 'Castle Bravo'). I had presumed this rose was extinct after it disappeared following the 2015 Big Freeze, but last year I discovered it still alive and blooming, hidden under a Rugosa hybrid.

Here's the first flower of 'Ivy Mike' this year.
