Yes Jubilee Celebration is looking great and so is Mrs B.R. Cant and, of course, Aotearoa; Iíve been a bit keen on all of them.
Could you rank their fragrance, please?

I have three full size bushes of Aotearoa and I would only give their fragrance rating as 2 or 3. I wouldn't put them in a show for good fragrance but as display only

Interesting, Neptune. See, I'd cheerfully give Aotearoa an 8 without thinking twice, that's how strong it is to me. Wonder if it's in the scent spectrum that is elusive to you. Over in my corner,. I've never swoomed over Mr Lincoln, known far and wide for his fragrance, so he obviously has some chemical that my olfactory chemicals don't process well.

Post by neptune on 9th November 2012, 19:33

I also found that Mr Lincoln wasn't as strong a smell as made out to be and was very disappointed because I got a couple of bushes to use in shows and it didn't come about....was a little cheesed about that as the time , money and effort to cultivate these into top producing bushes was a waste of time.......

Which brings us to another question: which roses have the strongest fragrance for you, Neptune? You have a selective nose ;-)

The selective nose comes from going to shows and finding out what the winning fragrance are

Neptune, you should have put in 'Firefighter'. During one of the big blows (Wind) I cut off a new cane with 3 blooms on it. It was vased for a week and fragrance filled the whole room. I tipped out the water and let them all dry out. The fragrance is still very intense, I think it is one of the best for fragrance

Thanks for the fragrance ranking, Jordan. Aotearoa is looking better by the minute, as is Firefighter, and Jubilee C a big surprise.

A couple of years ago I had 'Fire n Ice' on order. When the first bloom came out I knew it was a mislabel. It was red. RED. I figure it's Firefighter. Both start with 'Fir' !!
I don't feel particularly dudded actually.... it's a great rose. Very Happy

Sorry Neptune, I did get the alert that another reply was posted just before but thought after typing my post it would be highly unlikely it would make mine out of sequence. Sorry but pleased you like Firefighter as much as I

Another great rose is 'Good Samaritan' not real fragrant but it most always looks very fresh and healthy.
Swanes are to be commended for sourcing some very good roses we would not be able to bring in ourselves. There's always a few duds, some of these even win gold medals. A gold medal for 'Burgandy Iceberg' and a bronze for 'Firefighter' . I'm beginning to lose confidence in the test garden or those awarding the points.

Today I have just finished reading Shrub Roses and Climbing roses by David Austin. On page 193 titled An Afterword, he has some really interesting things to say about trial gardens. He offers a couple of good ideas. So for those of you with this book, I suggest you might like to read what he says.
I had two Burgundy Icebergs, one of which I traded for a fishing lure for my husband.
I love Marie Luis Marjan but so do the cotton beetles.

Bonita18, I'd have tried to swap two Burgandy Icebergs for two lures.

D A books have never been uppermost in my mind. Perhaps you can share the highlights with us here on the forum.
