Anyone growing "Gremlin"?

I bought it from Treloars last year as I had seen it the summer before when I visited their nursery. It wasn't on my list before the visit but by heck it was afterward. It kind of hits you in the eye... LOL (And hard to photograph it is so lurid)

Anyway, I'm really struck this year as to how healthy (and SHINY) the foliage is and it has heaps of blooms. So far it is a little rippa. Smile Thumbsup

I'm just surprised that Treloars didn't have it on their lists for this year.

Hi Autumn Damask, I was looking at the HMF website for Gremlin and it looks a lot like the one I have from Kordes but mine was called Typhoon Question
Does your rose have any yellow through it?

Not really. There is a bit in the bud but the bloom is basically orangey-red on the top of the petal and much lighter on the underside.

Hi Tamara - I took some more pics today. The young flowers certainly have more yellow in them. Not quite like Typhoon but still interesting!

Just have to say - this rose is AMAZING. love

Has gone through the year so far TOTALLY CLEAN. This year I've had heaps of BS and mildew and this rose is just glossy, healthy and generous with blooms.

And for an added bonus: THE RABBITS DON'T LIKE IT!! The Darcey Bussell next to it gets munched though.

I wish all my rose bushes looked as healthy as this one.

What a healthy looking bush! This year, as an experiment, I planted elephant garlic near some of my rose bushes (a companion planting thing) and I have to say, that they are the healthiest they have ever looked. I'll definitely be getting more bulbs in 2012 from my supplier up the north coast. Thanks for sharing the pics with us.
