I'm just curious if anyone knows much about Riverview rose? I've seen it, but I can't find any information about it. scratch

Don't quote me on this quick reply. It is red and named after the private school on the Parramatta River north side. No wait, on the Lane Cove River, just down the road from where Doctor Bogle and Mrs Chandler were killed years ago(just a piece of trivia). It is Saint Ignatius college at Riverview

Happy Roses, have been growing this rose for a number of years. It is very healthy for a HT and vigorous. Doesn't have a great amount of fragrance like most of the healthy roses but first class in all other respects.

Davids ( Roseman ) explanation is spot on.

Another private school celebration rose that's very worthwhile is 'Tara'.
Being a girls school the rose is large, pink high centred with great fragrance.
Unfortunatly I don't propagate this one after giving my only plant to a friend who admired it. Shame as I thought I could get budwood back but they lost it due to neglect. If anyone has this rose I would like to hear from them.
