Danny, look at the top menu of the Red Cedar window. From left to right, you will see tabs that say "Description", "Photos", "Lineage", Awards", "Members Ratings", "Memebers Comments", etc. Click on Photos, and you are where you want to be.

Roseman if you mention Camp David one more time I just might have to buy it and check it out for myself! lol! Looks pretty good from photos I can find though there isn't a real lot. How long does it last and does it fade etc?

Happy, at present I have 7 buds sitting on the table beside me in a vase. With the constant heat they are opening reasonably quick, room temp 30c, outside who knows. I will let you know how long these have lasted. If my plant received more water and food they would stand up to the present heat longer IMO. Out of the 4 or 5 red smelly's I have taken to this one. Mr L in heat goes purple, Oklahoma is good, I prefer Papa M.
Many years ago I spoke to friend at Treloars and we decided it would look good as an avenue of 180 either side of my bosses entrance to his cellardoor(it never happened), can you imagine gifting bunches to customers as a marketing ploy, I could, he couldn't.

Thanks, I think I will add it to my collection of reds, you can never have enought smellys, this heat is terrible, lucky if anything lasts. I think it would have looked fantastic having a line up of roses to the entrance of the celler and what customer woundn't enjoy receiving a bunch of roses. My brother actually got some flowers when he bought a new car. Not roses, I forget what they were.

Roseman, what a pity your employer lacked your imagination and marketing nous. His loss I suppose, but what a picture it conjures.
So let me get this right. Camp David is perfumed (moderate or strong) and Loving Memory/Red Cedar has a nice perfume? Yes?
A garden I walk past has some new standards including Camp David - lots of flowers and seemed to last a long time, standing up to the heat well. A nice dark but bright red, that didn't disappear in the distance like some reds seem to do. As I couldn't have a sniff, I'm interested now, previously written off my list due to lack of fragrance. Always love a good red.

Silky, we are not talking Mudgee reds or Hunter reds, not even the Barossa reds. This red Loving Memory/Red Cedar is not a red IMO.
As for walking pasta garden Silky, stop look, go to the door introduce yourself and talk about the rose, you might be surprised, the owner/person could be very helpful. A lot of gardens started by asking for cuttings.

Well now Roseman, can you describe the colour of Loving Memory/Red Cedar if it isn't red?
Hunter red = postbox red.
Barossa red = deep crimson.
Mudgee red - no idea what you mean, is it wine?
Some photos on HMF show a rose that is more cherry/watermelon tones. Some have an earthy russet hue, a reddish version of western red cedar.

To be honest I really can't recall... It would have *some* but I can't remember it being a knock-out.

Pic of my Old Fragrance (hot day...). It'd be twice as wide if it hadn't been pruned. LOL
