Hi Margit,
The show is like nothing l have ever seen - a whole new stratospheric level of horticulture interest variety and participation in a country of apparently 27 million gardeners. First day of public entrance (my time) after Royals and RHS members days had thousands in attendance - Beales Austin and Harkness had displays that were impressive in bloom abundance and variety and a treat for a 4a zone inhabitant. And roses were only one part of show. An Austin new rose intro was named Emily Bronte. Enjoyed the OGRs through out displays ... unfortunately only confirmed zone 3 rose seen was Rosa Glauca. Spent most of vacation time touring the National Trust gardens of Cornwall - very temperate ... half time felt in subtropical zone of floral.

Hi Riku,
We will be traveling to England from Australia at the end June and will be attending the Hampton Court flower show which is on at the start of July(3-8), hope Harkness' new rose is there to see. It looks like some follow up breeding from his original Hulthemia's.
Did you enjoy the Cornwall area, we will be spending a week there, looking at where one side of my family came from.

Hi David,
Thoroughly enjoyed Cornwall ... once l got use to zero clearance on country roads, driving left and no shoulders. Some gardens l thoroughly enjoyed were Trebah (near Mawnansmith Falmouth), Glendurgan( next door to Trebah), Eden project at St Austell, St Michael Mount at Marazion (serve frost damage of succulents) and what a mountaineer’s garden hike ( kid not), Trelissick near Feock, Lost Gardens of Heligan near St Austelll and Lanhydrock near Bodmin. When we were there the rhodedendron and Amelia ( sic) were peaking. I had my own personal guide as my wife grew up in Cornwall (Redruth). Good luck and times at Hamptons Court.

Back home today, this is a "Nikon" photo I took at Chelsea at the Harkness "booth" of "The Morning Rose" taken Thursday ("Harzephyr") ... my photos are in the 8Mb range off the Nikon so kind of a pain to fit forum vs the cell phone camera photos - willing to learn how to reduce

It's not a given that this will be introduced. I don't know that it is an improvement on Harkness' other hulthemias -- none of which I have grown.

Thanks for the link Phil ... I tried about 2 or 3 that Pickering (defunct now) distributed a few years back, unfortunately they never came out of dormancy - never even one wintered by myself ... think they were having propagation problems at the time and I retreated from them as fast as I tried them ...
