Or if legal cuttings of cane reproducing pattern or is it roll the dice?

Is this annual June award based on the title for that day for Portland conditions, or is a long testing record also considered by the “international rose expert judges”?

Looking to understand background merits of award ... future pilgrimage trip (this year) background research question reason.
