Re: Recommendations for healthiest Austin Roses

If you study Austin's roses (and their descendants by others) carefully, you will notice patterns with some of the frequently used older roses that result in seedlings in the yellow-orange range. If you are looking for better-than-average (compared to the usual, older English Roses') disease resista...

Re: Newbie(ish) question

FWIW, I've always preferred matte leaves with a little texture to glossy leaves. Shiny reminds somehow of plastic, which is an association I don't really want when it comes to plants. Regarding leaf color, like others here I tend to prefer medium green to dark green. I prefer light green to bronze n...

Re: Darlow's enigma

I've grown Darlow's Enigma for a few seasons now and it is about as healthy as it gets here in Southern California, growing in partial shade. I don't know R. multiflora except from pictures, so I can't offer much in the way of comparison. The below link intrigued me in terms of its ability to genera...

Hoping for blooms this year. I'm in 10a, southern California - so far, pretty good growth. A tiny bit o...

Re: Source for Joycie (Moore)

Email Burling Leong at BurlingtonRoses@aol.com. She may be one of the few sources left on the planet. It's a tender rose, mine survived seven zone 5B winters in a shed but I lost them last winter. Well worth the effort to keep alive although the F1's have been relatively weak growers. It does pass ...

Re: Source for Joycie (Moore)

@ Don: I had reached out to Burling prior to the OP, hoping that she would have stock, but she said she had none. I followed up with her today to see if she knows of any other sources. Thank you for the suggestion. @Kim: That's a very nice offer of you. Coincidentally, I have been looking at Basye's...
