Pax 1918

Post by Bonita18 on 6th January 2012, 22:04

Help! I have planted a monster in my garden here outside Toowoomba! In about four months it has sent out two metre long canes, not unlike rootstock. However it has flowered and I am sure it is Pax 1918. The grasshoppers adore pruning it back but it is undeterred and is now the size of a very, very large gold umbrella!
Has anyone else found Pax 1918 to be very vigorous in growth. Peace 1902 is much more restrained and Peace 1945 is almost demure in her growth. I want to grow all three to have material for Anzac Day talks!

Perhaps it is because I have had almost 1100mms of rain in 2011 unlike 2006 when we had 520mm here.

I have Pax own-root and it hasn't been that vigorous down here... Botanica warns how big Pax will get when it gets going so I've left it 15sqft of space around it. Now I wish it would fill it atfer two years in the ground.

The "Pax" (tentatively Id'd as such because it ain't 'White Wings') I have is hardly taking over the world. It's barely got any leaves on it as the hoppers seem to like it very much. I may lose patience with it come winter... (but then again it may improve if shifted)

Can't help with the rose question, but I just wanted to say what a lovely plan to use the roses as focus for your Anzac Day talk. I have had to plan a number of Anzac Day presentations over the years and that is an approach I never thought of.

Do you have a photos of your Pax1918? I have an unidentified rose here that has shot to about 2m as well, it has only flowered once with only one bloom, and it was only planted in Sept.

Sorry but I seem unable ever to upload pictures with that servimg thingey.
I don't seem able to host it.
I once gave a talk on the effect of war on the rose breeding families of Europe. For example, the Pernet Ducher family lost two sons at war and that interrupted the breeders lineage you might say. The story of how the Meilland family had to grow veges instead of roses during WWII also shows how war affects human endeavour and affects plants as well.
