I know older is "better" in this case, but would Slc Jewelbox (my preference being for 'Dark Waters' over 'Scherezade') -- registered in 1962 qualify ?

I'm not sure exactly what you are looking for, i.e. just old plants or older plants that started the backbone of many hybrids over the years. Some of the "oldies" are still popular today. Here are just a few names you might want to consider,

PLANT-Date Registered
BC Deesse-1947
C Porcia'Cannizaro' FCC/AOS-1927
C Luminosa-1901
BLC Ranger Six 'AOK'1964
BLC Nacouchee-1952
SLC Anzac 1921
BLC Victoria 'Bluebird'1929
LC Irene Finney - 1964
LC Ariel - 1907
And, this doesn't even begin to scratch the surface. I would also kind of think about the virus problem. If someone tests the plant and it tests positive for virus it's probably a safe assumption that the plant is indeed virused. However, if it tests negative, I would not automatically assume that the plant is virus free. I am not aware of any false positives but the same can't be said of negatives.

Hi Paul. I think it would definately qualify. Jewelbox was a highly awarded cross if I remember correctly. You don't see it as much anymore.
