I would like to have a rose hybridized in memory of my wife

I would appreciate it if anyone could help me or steer me in the right direction to have a new rose hybrid created in memory of my recently deceased wife Charlotte F. Boman or St. Louis, Mo.

Charlotte was a Master Gardener Level II and worked as a volunteer at the Missouri Botanical Gardens in St. Louis.

She dedicated a lot of time to tending the extensive rose gardens there and was a superb home gardener as well.

She recently passed away from ovarian cancer and I am doing a tribute at the Botanical Gardens of a bench and tree.

What I really want to do however, is find someone whom I can pay to hybridize a rose for me and name if after Charlotte.

I can be contacted by e-mail or at any of the following contacts below:

Thank you to anyone who can assist me in this labor of love.

There is a rose already in commerce named Charlotte if that helps any. See link for details.
