Hey Jordan,

The Honey Dijon looks a beauty! Does it have much fragrance and does it last long.

Cheers

Honey Dijon will improve in colour and vigour with time in the ground. flowers produced in cool temps will have flashes of pink to the outside petals. doesn't fade.

That's right Dan, not a true yellow, but looking at ancestry, it could breed some good roses. We might talk to the breeder of it.

Certainly an unusual colour Jordan. Reminds me of Julia's Rose (now wasn't that a dud. Mine's still in the garden but not for long)
How would you describe its fragrance?

Roseman, I wish you would prove me wrong and then tell me what she needs. Mine is not only wimpy but stingy, weak and downright bloody-minded.Maybe I'm just not nurturing or patient enough.

I adore Juliaís Rose, just adore it, even though it hardly has any fragrance Ö

Iíve seen Juliaís Rose described as super fussy, and itís true that itís extremely prone to sun-burning, and must be kept in shade here, but I wouldnít call it fussy. Itís one of the most beautiful uniquely coloured roses Iíve seen, truly outstanding, not in focal point terms, but in its calm gentle effect.

The colours continue to change, but always stay interesting and warm.

I wasnít sure how to prune her, so I looked for some suggestions and found to prune her hard. As Iím not that into pruning, I followed this tip for only one cane, which has stayed quite short, producing only singular blooms on new shoots, but this is the cane I barely touched:

Dan, Iíve looked at Honey Dijon many times, and its good to see more photos here. If I wasnít headed for the OGRs, thatís what Iíd have, for sure, because the colours appear as warm and soft as other rosesí only glow in twilight.

We better start "Julia's Rose" thread and also one on how to transform people fro HT's and Floribundas to the world of other varieties. The world of the rose is huge, not only are there modern roses which came from ancient roses, some of the ancient ones are better IMO
