Found these growing at a house circa 1947. :)

This looks to be Ethel Craig.

Maybe Exciter, Geisha Girl or Mrs. Snyder Disraeli? :p

This may be one of the Rutherford cultivars. :eek:

Not real sure on this one. It is growing in some very heavy sun. Looks like it has not had any fertilizer in quite awhile. Need an experienced eye for this one. Bet the color patterns would be more pronounced with more shade protection. :rolleyes:

#1 - Ethel Craig
#2 - could be Disraeli, but the color is off (camera?)
#3 - either Veitchii or Queen Victoria
#4 - you can call it Satan or Irene Kingsley, I think they're the same variety
