I have noticed that Jordan thats why I asked my other barerooted roses have taken off but it seems as you say slow growing.I have double delight mate bought my house and it was here for me my favourite rose eventhrough it's common it 's perfume and flower is fantastic.Honey Dijon looks fantastic to similar to Julies rose which I have.Does it smell mate.I dont mind Paradise either.

I have had mine over 12 months in QLD, part shade under a bigger tree. It's a Floribunda (I thought it was supposed to be a HT though?). The flowers are amazing, the scent and the shape! Sometimes I do get single long stems though. It is still very short compared to some of my other bushes, but that is perhaps it is shaded by another tree and isn't growing as well. Has to be one of my favourites by scent alone. Grows really well in summer and winter here (hope the photos aren't too big).

Hi RosyTeesh , great photo's , just can't wait for mine to flower , your description is what i expected from what i have read , beautiful fragrance , medium sized bush , nice colour , mine has had a torrid start with torrid weather , if it survives , and flowers well i'd say its a good rose . I planted Baron de Rothschild at the same time , will be interesting to see how they compare too ...

I will give it a go but being new to this rose growing not to sure about some fragrances......

I just went out & picked my new BN flower which opened this morning, to me it has a fruity smell but a little bit spicy, it also has undertones of raspberry in my opinion. Hope this helps a little betsyw scratch

Hi Maree Smile Thank you! We have had weeks of rain here and it has survived and is sprouting new shoots which I am excited about. I can't even compare it to anything that I have. But tambralyngar's description of scent is pretty spot on. Keep us posted Very Happy

BN was the rose I was looking to put into my new bed but couldn't find it at my local nurseries so spur of the moment I settled for Barbra Striesand, with Munstead Wood beside. Only to find BarbS is susceptible to the dreaded bs. That will teach me to succumb to my wild urges. When I get a vision in my head I tend to get carried away with impatience.
Does anyone have any experience of Barbra Striesand. It's supposed to be mauve tinged with purple with intense fragrance. It's a very strong looking plant in its pot. Will be getting planted in the next day or so. Tell me the worst now please, so I can get my tanty out of the way now, rather than when handling it!

Silkyfizz , i have been tempted to plant Barbara , but like you have read she is BS prone , supposed to be a nice rose though , personally i have no patience anymore with BS magnets , i guess you can but try it and like me if you don't like it , yank it out or put it in a pot on trial first , let us know how you go .....

Maree the only problem is I find it so hard to yank plants out. They look at me and I tell them I'll give them one more chance. Sounds crazy doesn't it? I really do have to toughen up lol. Although now I've read on this forum that massive amount of new soil needed, dying roots tainting soil etc is but a myth!! Up to now this has really put me off replacing roses. I just extend another bed for newies but space is at a premium as I don't have unlimited room.
I'll keep you updated as to how Babs goes in the ground. (have little success with pots).

Lucy...try this little trick when you take out a existing rose...

1- Remove rose
2- Get yourself a non-waterproof cardboard box and take out the top and bottom
3- Place box in soil where new rose is going
4- Remove all old soil so that the box is flush with the top of the soil
5- Place rose and new soil/potting mix inside of box and water in
6- This gives the new rose to settle in while the cardboard box rots and the rose is strong enough to continue to grow and also it does not have to compete against other plants for food

Good luck with Babs, Silkyfizz. For me she's on the never-never list, along with one of her parents, the gorgeous Angel Face, another exquisite scent-o-rama mauve that's a bs restaurant. I've seen and swooned over a magnificent bed of AFs, to be sure, but the spray regimen as related to me by the proud rosarian was positively fiendish, even as far back as the less eco-sensitive '90s.

But hey, I reckon Babs could give you joy for a little while, or maybe a long while if she works wellenough in your Vic. garden. I think some of these older Moderns are like classic cars - they're not techno-marvels nor entirely roadworthy, but they have a undeniable beauty and magnetic fragrance , and come into their own away from the crappy leaves and in a vase to be admired by all.
