Felicite et Perpetue

Post by Bonita18 on 2nd November 2011, 22:45

Today our Heritage Rose Group for the Darling Downs in Qld went on a Rose Ramble. We found three sites where massive areas of a rose that looked very like Little White Pet were growing. Is is possible that Felicite et Perpetue has been used as a rootstock or was it a very popular last century. All the sites were in areas where it would be reasonable to assume a house or some other building once stood. Ian, the biggest area is at the .... bridge in the dip below the ..... Pub. You possibly know this location.

We also saw what we believed to be Eglantine growing wild in a field near a very old grand homestead. The owner mowed a swathe of grass for us to reach it.

Another once flowering rose is bright red and flowers every year near a dairy. It is vigorous as it is growing near a spring.

We had a wonderful day and visited other rose gardens with a lot of interesting old roses.

Hi Bonita... I just went in and removed the locations of those found roses you mentioned... I think it is best not to mention exact locations of found roses in a public forum in case they get 'ransacked' before their real identity is known and they can be propagated by those like your heritage rose group to ensure their ongoing existence.... I have a place down here where 'Felicite et Perpetue' comes up every year and every year I try to propagate it and fail.... I don't tell people about it becuase I want it to still be there, at least until I get some cuttings to strike.

Wise advice Simon. I was very tired and not thinking straight.
Thanks

Simon I have two budded 'Felicite et Perpetue', you can have one this winter if you would like one.
Nearly didn't have any as I budded one and when the shoot was 3" long something like my dog knocked the shoot off. I then took the two young buds off this shoot and put them on Multiflora so now have two.
