Looks like it (esp the first photo). I can never get a decent photo of ours.
It also looks like something else but for the life of me I cannot remember what it is.

Some one did mention a name but I have forgotten, this gets a little mildew but when a rose flowers nonstop through a southern winter what can you say. Ten Thousand Lights did the same but does not mildew at all , Really getting the hang of these little China's. Have a couple of TTL hybrids growing at the moment , so will be interesting.

Ian mentioned a few names in this discussion. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

My Old Blush didn't have any mildew this last year and other varieties did.

My old Blush never seems to have enough leaves on it to get mildew. Not sure why its just no bushy.

Its a shrub about 2 foot tall. Has never really grown much. Gets a moderate number of flowers on it. Not sure if it isthe humidity but black spot does not seem to worry it.

Warren

What is the shrub form like.

I remember what I thought it looked like. Archduke Charles though it is usually a bit darker. It seems to be a better shrub than old blush (at our place).

Gary here are pics of Old Blush? and Ten Thousand Lights ( the bottom one) both were grown from cuttings this time last year , so one year old plants.


Old Blush?



Ten Thousand Lights.



This is not rose related but one of my interests, have been working on this for the past 33 yrs, its a Swamp Cypress (Taxodium distichum)

Is it just me cypress look like something out of a horror movie?

The chinas are certainly growing well. Your "Old Blush" is bigger than ours even though ours is a few years old (also cutting grown).
