Who painted this amazing mural?
It was Mona Caron. Check her on Facebook and on Laughing Squid.

In the American Florist in 1912, there is a small note that George Roeding announced a $1000 prize for a rose contest for PPIE:
San Francisco Calif - Geo. C. Roeding, chief of the department of horticulture of the Panama Pacific International Exposition, has been authorized to make the announcement that a prize of $1,000 will be offered for a new rose to be named in honor of the exposition.
