Lost my topic/ last season roses.

Post by sallybcs on 11th March 2012, 20:09

I posted a topic a few days ago asking for feedback on roses planted in 2011.

Summer Memories (Treloar) was a standout for me.

Munstead Wood is also looking promising.

Now I can't find the thread...oh well. Anyone else have any feedback on the newer varieties?

""Marie Luise Marjan" is a monster white florabunda here in Toowoomba (Highfields to be exact). "Honey Dijon" is settling in well but I think I prefer the "Julia's Rose" I once had. The Alister Clark rose, Marjory Palmer does nothing but flower! The DA rose "Princess Alexandra of Kent" is settling in well. The climber "Dublin Bay"is winding its way around the old cockatoo cage along with the clematis "Daniel Derondo" and the three single white daisy bushes I planted around the cage has not stopped the neighbour's chook which visits us each day, from sitting inside the cage. Alas no eggs have been deposited there - well not yet.

Thanks for that Neptune, I was beginning to think I was imagining it. Don't know how I managed to put it in the "Off Topic" forum.

Bonita, Thanks for the information. I've always liked the pic Treloar have in their catalogue of Marie Luise Marjan, the flowers look so romantic. Glad to hear that it is doing well. The people at Golden Vale told me that Marjory Palmer was one of the most floriferous roses available, but the colour didn't suit at the time. I may have to rethink. I'm near Brisbane so I've never tried a clematis, I am very envious of your Dublin Bay, DD combination.
I am ordering Princess Alexandra of Kent this year, I can't ignore the pics, I'm a sucker for those glorious shots, I dithered last year and was too late. Hopefully it will suit my place as well. Thanks again.

I have a birthday soon and my husband is buying me the ╦yes for You rose from Brindabella. I will plant it in a very, very large purple ceramic pot I inherited when my mother in law went to nursing home. I just love the 'Blue for You" rose and I think ╦yes for You will be a bit like it. The plants are cutting grown which I have come to really like. No need to worry about roostock types and no suckers to be removed.

I'm trying to wrangle a trip to Brindabella. When will the autumn flush be in full swing up on the range?

I have planned a Heritage Rose Good Day Out for Saturday April 28th and the Brisbane Heritage Rose group will be joining us here in my garden and then to nearby Peacehaven Botanic Park and up the road, walking distance from our house to Davidson Arboretum which is full of deciduous trees which should be at its best at that time. Please email me privately if you are interested in further details as you are most welcome to visit me.

Forgot to mention that a "Our Rosy Carpet" Weeper is going well. Plenty of flowers and little disease, which is pretty remarkable given the rain and humidity this summer.
