I responded to your post stamped 9.29 Simon, but then when I pressed send, it sort of disappeared. I waffled on about Mary Magdalene shattering all too soon but waxed on about its heart breaking beauty making it all worth while.

If someone else posts before you while you are typing a response it won't appear... it will ask you to modify it but I find that I sometimes get a little too eager and click right past this modify part and so lose the post... which as you have discovered is a PITB when you've 'waxed' on for some time.

thanks, poor things as soon as they get buds I'm eyeing them off, if I had the room I would get it, but as it is I try to get ones that last.

Life is ephemeral and so there is a lesson about life in lots of roses. I overheard a person at a rose show say" those roses are so stiff, they look like toffee apples only different colours!"
Your taste in roses changes unless you are a very focussed exhibitor - wanting to win prizes. There is a whole world of roses out there. I grow them for their history - I have Peace 1902 to commemorate the Boer War, Pax 1918 to mark the end of WWI and Peace 1945 for WWII.
I adore Parole - for its generosity of bloom. Othello DAustin to remember the first time I saw David Ruston arrange fantastic, sumptous arrangements in the Exhibition Bldg in Melbourne.
St Patrick rarely blooms for me but Rose of Wagga Waggao right next to St P blooms often. Blue for You is my favourite floribunda.

Blue for You sets masses of hips and I have planted some. Two seeds have produced two very vigorous plants with blooms not unlike but exactly like the parent plant.

Ritter Von Bardmstadt never is without flower - Gardens of St Erth which is a little multiflora type bush never, ever, ever is without flowers.
Maman Cochet is possibly my favourite tea rose.

Good to know that 'Blue for You' can produce decent seedlings. I have used it as both seed & pollen parent this year! Smile

Next year I am hitting it with r. fedtschenkoana pollen.

Hi everyone. I will add Parade to the list here, as when I didn't have much blooming in my garden as dead heading hadn't been done all Summer or exta watering, I took a bloom of Parade to the show and got best exhibit with it. There wasn't much competition there though.
Also I finally got a bed of my newer David Austins mowed and weeded and the rose bush at the front, Lady of Megginch, bloomed a stunning rose to say thankyou.

I have noticed that when I go to pick some roses they have holes in the buds, is that caused by thrips? Rotten things they are. Grrr.

It's raining at the moment, but I can describe them as black, small and appear to be round at the back, I think Hibiscus beetle. ( I was just looking at pics of them) They seem to like certain roses. The other ones seem to be ok.

I went and had a look so I could take a pic and do you think I could find any? Who ever heard of camera shy bugs? Dunno

Tantrum Thoses rotten bugs! I was looking forward to PJPII blooms opening and those whatever they are has already got to them and put holes in them. I have been spraying with Confidor and Mathalon ( I think it's spelt wrong). Have been having a lot of rain this Summer. Only really had a few hot days. Is there something else that's better to use? When you mix up Mathalon with water, is it one of those things that stops working after a while; that is do you need to use the spray up quickly?
As Lucille Ball says WAAAAAAAA! Thinking maybe flamethrower might be a tad extreme but I feel like using one. Twisted Evil Will try to take a pic on the weekend.

Could Rosalie and Rita (and anyone else with an opinion) please comment on which DAs last reasonably well in a vase?

Well, you're right of course, David. Fragrant is always better. But in this case, I would like to know about ANY DAs that last reasonably well, perfumed or not, and regardless of colour.

Meryl I find most of them do okay as cut flowers indoors . The only exception that I can think of right now is Anne Boleyn which tends to shatter very easily so I leave her outside and enjoy her in the garden.
Graham Thomas , Abraham Darby, Sweet Juliet , Evelyn , Jude the Obscure , The Dark Lady , Pat Austin , Swan , and Eglantyne are all ones that I pick on a regular basis.

Interesting to read about Simon's experiences with The Children's Rose as I rate that as a fantastic cut flower ; smells divine , has long long stems if you need them , repeats well and keeps a week in a vase on average for me . Ditto for Best Friend .
Another elegant and shapely bloom in a vase is The Lady however it is not quite as long lasting .
I have had some fantastic blooms on my Princesse de Monaco this year [it has been loving this hot dry weather - about the only thing that is Tantrum ] and I have been picking them and bringing them inside and they have been keeping really well .
I did take photo's for this thread but unfortunately they are on "my" computer which has gone in for brain surgery so they'll just have to wait.

cheers. Rosalie

Thanks, Rosalie, that will be very helpful for the future. Frustratingly right now, your list doesn't include any of the roses I picked this morning to take to a very ill friend in an hour or so. I am hoping they won't collapse too quickly. They include Golden Celebration, Scepter'd Isle, The Endeavour, Canterbury, Grace and Molyneux. Any info on these would be welcome for future reference. (If you are wondering why I don't know about these, it's because the other half is an orchid nutter and there are always so many orchids in bloom in the house that I don't pick the roses.)

The Children's Rose is a nice rose but seems to collapse on me after a day or so in a vase... when compared to roses like 'Kardinal', 'First Gold', 'Antique Silk' (AKA 'Champagner'), 'Happy Anniversary', and 'Eliza' which all last well over a week.

Simon are you sure it's The Children's Rose? It's one of the best picking roses here - has the best of everything - few prickles, very strong stems, great smell, and long vase life. Autumn blooms remind me of Souvenir de la Malmaison.

Meryl my best picking DA is Radio Times. Thrives in the heat, so lasts well in the vase in summer. Intoxicating perfume. It's an angular grower but bushes up after a few years. Prickles are a pain.

I quite like the look of childrens rose, originaly I was going to get Fairy tale Queen because it's supposed to be quite good, a liitle pale though, but hard to get. But it was suggested to me by the lady at the nursery that I try Truly Yours. Small bush with very large flowers. Supposed to last. Anyone had any expirence with it?
