Short, fat, overdressed and doused in perfume Mark II

Post by betsyw on 10th February 2013, 17:32

This subject came up in the current thread on Augusta Luise et al. The old Fat, Short thread seemed a bit old and long to drag up again, so I am starting a new compilation here for those willing to contribute their favs.

In my current SFODP rose holdings, I can't really tick every box for a single rose except the beautiful, compact and powerfully scented Love Potion, and while perfect in so many respects, she's blackspotting rather alarmingly.

Day Breaker is pure gold in all categories but perfume. Still, this is one fantastic Fat Lady, and dressed to the nines. What a terrific looking, shapely flower-laden bush - and it's a great repeater. Blooms last and last on the bush, too (but that striking tri-colourr doesn't hold in the heat)

I'm liking Soul Mate, but she's not in full stride yet, so it's early days.

Over to you guys.

Soul Mate is here at home(Mudgee). There is a saying which I think appropriate for this rose. "patience is a virtue, sometimes in a man, not in a woman" roflmao something along those lines. This rose will take a long time to come into any maturity, so the operative word here is "patience". IMO.

Now I'm going to make a fool of myself here.
I don't have one single solitary rose growing, that falls in this category unfortunately, but from my reading, looking etc I've made a list of possibles. Feel free to tell me "I'm dreamin" and knock any/all of these out the door if they shouldn't be here.

Silky , no worries there , except for Scentimental , for me its not overly fragrant , but thats just me . My favourites haven't changed , not until some new ones come along , and i'm sure they will , they are - Violina , Olde Fragrance , Oklahoma , Heaven Scent , Firefighter, Jubilee Celebration , Aoteroa ...

Have been reading about Bolero, the one coded Meidelweis, the white Meilland rose bred by Mouchotte around 2003. Everything points to this onebeing a true SFODP -size, shape , bloomiforousness, and super duper scent.

Anyone know if it's available here?
