The "Best" label mix-up you've had?

Post by AutumnDamask on 9th June 2011, 20:40

For purchased roses:

Mme Hardy instead of Tuscany Superb. 2 years in a row. Laughing

Constance Spry instead of Queen of Denmark. Twice.

Rosa longicuspis var. sinowilsonii (now that I know what it is) instead of Aimee Vibert.

I got 'Popcorn' instead of 'Si'... but this one takes the cake:

I bought a climbing rose labelled as 'Climbing Angel Face' and put it in and tended it carefully for two years to get a flower and when it did... it was 'Dr Huey' and not how you might expect! It was 'Dr Huey' grafted onto 'Dr Huey"!!! It was clearly a grafted rose. To add insult to injury it also turned out to have RMV... it got shovel pruned straight away.

Duh
And it probably had RMV from both sides of the graft! :p
