Lol Silkyfizz , i can speak a bit of Italian , wonder if any of my roses hail from the Mediteranean . Which begs me to ask how do you like Chartrueuse and Dioressence ? I have a standard Chartreuse and i had a standard Dioresscene but i pulled it out , it was nice but it was a very tall plant from memory, could hardly see the roses , i have a standard Heaven Scent rose which is the same , beautiful perfume , but need to be a giraffe to see blooms , next year i'm replacing that one . Chartreuse is a beautiful smelling rose with lovely flowers , but my of my what a woeful bush , had a bush one too , but that came out , if my standard doesn't improve this year , out it comes next year too . BS magnet as well , and sheds its leaves at the first sign of BS, gggrrrhh , does yours do that too ...

Yes I'm afraid so Maree. Beautiful flowers and perfume on both CdP and Dior but not strong growth and prone to BS. Both of mine are bush roses so no problems with getting too tall. I just love them both though and their colours are perfect where I've got them growing, surrounded by by bluebells, babiana, blue columbines, purple bearded iris, blue and fuscia coloured sages, penstemons etc. I've just planted some peonies nearby to harmonise. I'm going to try home-made BS spray this season (you know, with bicarb) and give them lots of manure and extra mulch, so will see how that works.

will do Maree, if I can work out how to download pics. Peonies haven't emerged yet but I'm checking them every day, bit like waiting for a kettle to boil.

I have Blackberry Nip - It is a NZ bred rose. Roses and Friends stock it. It is not a tall grower here in the Toowoomba area. Love the shape and the perfume but don't ask me how it smells. It is just deeply pleasant to my nose.

Just picked my first Blackberry Nip for the year 2013 , the bloom and colour is perfect , but so far to my nose , the fragrance is about 5/10 , i'm disappointed in that , maybe as the weather warms up it will get better , but at the moment i think its a much better flowerer than Big Purple but Big Purple has it hands down for fragrance .....

My exact thoughts, maree. I'm using BN as a filler in vases, otherwise I'd probably get rid of it. Big Purple is so gorgeous in form and fragrance, but so stingey that every appearance of a flower is cause for rejoicing. BP is a rose that would be a perfect candidate for some genetic re-engineering ;-))

Lol Betsy , the Big Purple i had was the same , unreal perfume but so slow to re flower , such a shame , would be a perfect rose otherwise , i'll keep Blackberry Nip for a few years until something better comes along , then i'll probably replace it , unless the fragrance really hots up ....

Such a shame for you all, because mine is still amazing. Flowers constantly and the scent is still fantastic. Very fruity! I dug BP out because it never flowered, and when it did flower the scent wasn't really there.

How long have you had your Blackberry Nip, Teesh? I'm wondering if it's a third-year-leap kinda rose. I'd also be tempted to say that BN likes the hotter Qld climes, but you can't get much hotter (or drier) than the Hunter right now.

The smell is definitely more prominent in winter. But still has a great smell now. Its about 2 years old but had a great scent straight away. I think sometimes some of the roses we get are just a bad batch if that makes sense.

I think you are definately right Rosy , thats the only thing that makes sense regarding differing perfume in roses , but maybe some roses like more or less alkaline/neutral/acidic  soil as well , who knows , its such a lottery lol

At a recent show there was a unit of Blackberry Nip  in a Decorative Class on the show bench and the flowers were stunning.

Couldn't agree more Ausrose , mine is in the bed facing the footpath here and is exposed to all weather and performes brilliantly ,and is a good rose for a streetscape spot, but the fragrance to me just isn't strong enough , am hoping as the weather warms up the fragrance will get stronger, and then it would be a perfect rose ....

I prefer blackberry nip the colour is amazing and has good bloom form and lasts as a flower to,.Happy Roses I think it was you who asked about the rose Summer Frangrance some time ago and I would recommend it if you can get your hands on it.Very healthy rose and a lovely perfume and cut flower to. Mine got burned in summer ،but camed back strong with a nice flush after the extreme heat.How did you go with Ingrid Bergman.

Nice photos, thanks for the input looks like BN is the preferred choice.

DannyBoy, I did get Summer Fragrance and I'm looking forward to see how it goes. Ingrid is doing well, blooms are a good form and lasts well. Not much scent tho.
